Giro d’Italia 2018 | Stage 19 | Venaria Reale – Bardonecchia

May 25, 07:43 PM

An extraordinary day at the Giro d’Italia saw Chris Froome embark on an 80km solo breakaway to win the 19th stage and take over the pink jersey. Richard Moore and Daniel Friebe were at the finish in Bardonecchia to witness the previous leader, Simon Yates’, collapse and Froome’s recovery, after he looked out of it a week ago.

In the podcast we hear from the Team Sky principal Dave Brailsford and from the rider who set up Froome’s attack, Kenny Ellissonde. There’s also reaction from Tom Dumoulin, who now sits second, 40 seconds down on Froome, his teammate Laurens ten Dam, and from Thibaut Pinot, who has moved up to third. Chris Juul-Jensen, Yates’ Mitchelton-Scott teammate, also tells us about the team’s difficult day.
