33: Stage 2 | Bologna to Fucecchio | Giro d’Italia 2019

Join Richard Moore, Lionel Birnie and Daniel Friebe at their Tuscan agriturismo as they digest the sprint finish at the end of the second stage of the Giro d’Italia.

Lionel headed out to the San Baronto climb, described as the Box Hill of Tuscany by Richard, and we hear from Max Sciandri about the hill’s place in Italian cycling history and culture.

Caleb Ewan and Pascal Ackermann’s Bora-Hansgrohe sports director Jens Zemke talk about the German champion’s stage win, we hear from Matt White about Simon Yates’s confidence and from Tom Dumoulin and his sports director Michiel Elijzen about the Dutchman’s performance in the time trial.

Plus Richard has a crazy theory about Egan Bernal, Matt White points out an inconvenient historical fact about Primoz Roglic and we reveal details of The Cycling Podcast’s event – which we’re calling the Wold Championships – in Yorkshire later this year.

The Cycling Podcast is supported by Rapha and Science in Sport.
