Stage 11 | Modena to Asolo | Giro d'Italia 2016

May 18, 2016, 07:39 PM

In Wednesday's Cycling Podcast from stage 11 of the Giro d’Italia to Asolo, Lionel Birnie and Daniel Friebe analyse a second Diego Ulissi stage win & an eventful day in the battle for the pink jersey. Billed as a mere 'transitional stage', the 227km northward journey from Modena allowed overnight leader, Bob Jungels, to gain further time on race favourites Vincenzo Nibali & Alejandro Valverde.

Lionel & Daniel hear from Nibali, who attacked in vain on the penultimate climb of the day, & Ciro Scognamiglio also delivers his typically idiosyncratic verdict on the Sicilian's tactics.

There are interviews with Steven Kruijswijk, Tom Dumoulin & Leigh Howard, who spent some of the stage sloshing around in a roadside ditch.
