May 20, 2018, 09:00 PM

This episode of The Cycling Podcast finds Richard Moore, Lionel Birnie and Daniel Friebe in the German-speaking part of northern Italy after another impressive stage win for Simon Yates, who extended his lead in the Giro d’Italia.

But the question is, does Yates have enough of an advantage over Tom Dumoulin to have a chance of winning the Giro bearing in mind the Dutchman could take significant time in Tuesday’s time trial.

We hear from Yates’s sports director Matt White, who was in an extremely upbeat mood, and from Dumoulin and Sunweb’s Marc Reef, who were not feeling so chipper.

We also hear from Movistar’s Jose Vicente Garcia Acosta about Richard Carapaz, one of the suprise packages of the race, and from the young Grand Tour debutant Ben O’Connor of Dimension Data. There’s also news of Daniel’s secret mission into Austria.
