August 21 | The Vuelta a España continued with a flattish stage to Baiona that was won by Etixx-Quick Step's Belgian sprinter Gianni Meersman.

Team Sky's Michal Kwiatkowski finished fourth in the sprint to take the leader's red jersey from his team-mate Peter Kennaugh.

In this episode, Richard Moore and Lionel Birnie recap the stage, weigh up the lack of top sprinters in the race and ask why Cofidis rider Nacer Bouhanni, who crossed the line first at the Hamburg Cyclassics only to be disqualified, chose not to ride the Vuelta.

There's also a report from Spain by Daniel Friebe, setting the scene of the opening weekend.
