In the latest Cycling Podcast from the Giro d’Italia, Richard Moore and Lionel Birnie are joined by Sophie Smith as they discuss the sixth stage from Ponte to Roccaraso, with the first summit finish.

There are interviews with the Orica-GreenEdge sports director Matt White, and with Rory Sutherland of the Movistar team. White was critical of Movistar’s tactics on the treacherous descent of Bocca della Selva: “We had that information [that the descent was dangerous] and Movistar railed the descent, which I was very surprised by,” said White.

“They took a lot of risks and I think it was a pretty silly move. There’s no need to take risks. Teams have different tactics. Sometimes it leaves you scratching your head.”

We also hear from the Team Sky leader Mikel Landa and there is the latest instalment of The Shark’s Tale, the Vincenzo Nibali story.
