154: Stage 19 | Ávila – Toledo | Vuelta a España 2019
There was controversy at the Vuelta a España just two days from the end when a crash took out Primoz Roglic, the race leader, and the Movistar team appeared to try to take advantage.
Richard Moore and Daniel Friebe discuss this “beef” and we hear from Deceuninck-Quick Step workhorse Tim Declercq, whose team was triumphant once again.
There’s also an interview with Willie Smit, a South African on the Katusha-Alpecin team with an extraordinary life story – and an uncertain future. And there are the latest audio diaries from James Knox and Nick Schultz.
