September 2 | Valerio Conti of Lampre won the 13th stage of the Vuelta a Espana, becoming the eighth rider to get his first grand tour stage win in this race.

In this episode of The Telegraph Cycling Podcast Lionel Birnie and Daniel Friebe discuss Conti's victory and the peloton's go-slow. At 213 kilometres it was the longest stage of the race and the time gap between Conti, the rest of the break and the peloton was almost 34 minutes, meaning the bunch spent more than six hours in the saddle.

Before he signed off from the Vuelta Richard Moore spoke to Sergey Lagutin, a stage winner a few days ago, and Michael Gogl, a young Austrian rider with Tinkoff, both of whom made it into the 12-man break.
