The penultimate day of the Giro d’Italia and the final mountain stage saw a minor shakeup of the overall classification, with Mikel Landa leapfrogging Primoz Roglic to occupy the final step of the podium. But with only a small deficit to make up, Roglic should be the rider to finish behind Richard Carapaz and Vincenzo Nibali in Verona on Sunday.Richard Moore and Daniel Friebe discuss the stage and there are interviews with Nibali and Roglic’s sports director, Addy Engels. We also hear from two of the revelations of the race, Pavel Sivakov and Eddie Dunbar — and Sivakov gives us an eye witness account of an incident that led to Miguel Angel Lopez attacking a spectator. The Cycling Podcast is supported by Rapha and Science in Sport.The music for this episode is by Amaraterra (http://amaraterra.bandcamp.com (http://amaraterra.bandcamp.com/) )

I listened to Sherwen and Liggett because my Dad did when he watched the TdF. My Dad had a Flying Scot bike and I inherited my love of TdF because of him and P&P’s commentary. I honour my Dad’s memory by watching the TdF and it will never be the same without the two Ps’ travelogue.

Probably the best sports podcast I listen too and cycling isn't my number one sport. Richard, Daniel and Lionel are a great combination with news, features and humour in the right measure. Full daily episodes of all grand tours too. Excellent podcast.
