Stage 16: Rovetta - Bormio

May 23, 2017, 10:34 PM

For some the Giro d'Italia really started with stage 16, the first multi-mountain stage in the Alps that finished with a fast descent to Bormio. The stage was thrilling and controversial with the debate over whether Tom Dumoulin's rivals should have waited when he stopped to answer a call of nature before the third major climb of the day.

Richard Moore and Daniel Friebe discuss this and we hear from some of the day's protagonists. There's also a surreal contribution from Dutch veteran Bram Tankink and we take Joe Dombrowski for a drive in The Cycling Podcast's Maserati.
