Stage 10 | Caravaca / Elpozo Alimentación | Vuelta a España 2017
The Vuelta a España resumed after its first rest day in rainy Murcia and The Cycling Podcast has an interview with Chris Froome, who is in the overall lead and in a strong position to win his first Vuelta. He talks about the threats ahead over the next two weeks, his fears about another ambush, like the one that cost him the Vuelta in 2016, and how his rivals have caught up with him – he also hints that one year he will miss the Spanish tour to ride the Tour of Britain.
Richard Moore, Daniel Friebe and Fran Reyes discuss stage ten, which saw the first serious move of this Vuelta by the Shark of Messina, Vincenzo Nibali – a trademark attack on a dangerous descent. In the end it wasn’t Nibali but Nicolas Roche who gained some time back on Froome, with the Irishman moving up to second equal overall as Matteo Trentin won his second stage.
There’s some exciting news about Spain’s biggest team, Movistar, and we look ahead to stage 11 with Igor Anton, who won on the same climb back in 2006.
