This episode of The Cycling Podcast comes from Biella, at the foot of the climb to a Oropa where stage 14 of the Giro d'Italia finished.

It was a stage when Tom Dumoulin must have expected to come under pressure but he not only stood up to the attacks from Nairo Quintana but managed to drop the Colombian in the final few hundred metres to win the stage and tighten his grip on the pink jersey.

Lionel Birnie and Daniel Friebe discuss the stage, assess the riders who moved up and down the general classification and ask what is in store for the final mountainous week of the race.

We also hear from Vincenzo Nibali, the defending champion about his own and Dumoulin's performance at Oropa.
