May 09, 2018, 08:37 PM

This episode of The Cycling Podcast finds Lionel Birnie and Daniel Friebe in Menfi, the home town of Team Sky’s Sicilian rider Salvatore Puccio where they recap stage five of the race to Santa Ninfa.

The honours went to Team Lotto NL-Jumbo’s Enrico Battaglin, who had been third the previous day. In this episode we hear from defending champion Tom Dumoulin, plus Nicolas Portal and Matt White look ahead to tomorrow’s stage on Etna.

There’s also a conversation with Kenny Elissonde about why Chris Froome lost time yesterday and we hear from Team Sky’s Dave Brailsford about the ongoing salbutamol case hanging over Froome and its effect on performance.

And Lionel learns Italian.
