The Vuelta a España got underway with an evening team time trial on the Costa Blanca which was costly for a couple of the overall contenders.
Join Lionel Birnie in Torrevieja for the first episode of our nightly Vuelta coverage as he recaps a day that has put one of the big favourites into the red jersey already.
We also hear the first despatches from our two audio diarists in the peloton, James Knox of Deceuninck-Quick Step and Nick Schultz of Mitchelton-Scott.
