August 25 | The Telegraph Cycling Podcast returns with a review stage six of the Vuelta a España, which was won by Britain's Simon Yates.

Lionel Birnie discusses the stage with Daniel Friebe, who is in Spain awaiting Richard Moore's arrival at the race.

It was an impressive victory by Yates, who spent the summer on the sidelines serving a short suspension after testing positive for an asthma medicine that was only permitted with a Therapeutic Use Exemption, which had not been applied for.

Yates seized his chance near the end, attacking on a slight rise and fending off the chase from behind.

We also discuss the overall picture and weigh up race leader Darwin Atapuma's position among this golden generation of Colombian riders.
