May 06, 07:10 PM

The Giro d’Italia’s three-day stay in Israel concluded with a long stage through the Negev desert from Be’er Sheva to Eilat.

And although the landscape was very different to Saturday’s stage the end result was the same. There was a second stage win for Quick Step’s Elia Viviani.

In this episode of The Cycling Podcast, Richard Moore and Lionel Birnie recap the days racing as we hear from Quick Step sports director Davide Bramati and domestique Michael Morkov.

We also discuss Rohan Dennis and his chances of keeping the pink jersey when the race resumes in Sicily on Tuesday, plus we hear from his team support rider Kilian Frankiny.

There’s also a guest appearance from La Gazzetta dello Sport’s Ciro Scognamglio, which means the Giro has truly begun.
