In this episode of The Cycling Podcast, Lionel Birnie and Daniel Friebe recap the eighth stage which finished at a small hill-top town in the middle of Spain called Almadén.
And, as is so often the case with uphill finishes like this, Spaniard Alejandro Valverde triumphed – making it his second stage win of the race. Lionel and Daniel disagree over whether this was a typical Valverde finish or not.
We also hear from LottoNL-Jumbo’s young American Sepp Kuss, who has had a good first week at his debut grand tour, and from Antoine Duchesne, team-mate of red jersey holder Rudy Molard.
In the final part, Fran Reyes makes an appearance to explain what to expect at Sunday’s mountain-top finish at La Covatilla.
