Giro d'Italia Stage 20: Pordenone – Asiago
The penultimate day of the Giro d’Italia saw Thibaut Pinot take a strong stage win as Nairo Quintana held the pink jersey and Tom Dumoulin slipped a few more seconds. Yet the race remains in the balance. With only a flat 29km time trial into Milan to come the top four are separated by just 53 seconds and any one of them could still be crowned winner.
Richard Moore and Daniel Friebe discuss the stage and the implications for the pink jersey, and we hear from Julien Pinot, Thibaut’s brother and coach, as well as from Pinot’s teammate Sebastian Reichenbach. There is also reaction from Dumoulin, Bauke Mollema, Ilnur Zakarin, Matt White and Dimitri Konyshev. We also take Doug Ryder, team principal of the African team Dimension Data, for a spin in the Maserati.
