The Cycling Podcast, Giro d'Italia 2020 — stage 19: On the buses - EPA

Richard and Lionel are joined by professional rider Lizzy Banks as they discuss stage 19 at the Giro d'Italia and stage four at the Vuelta a España, though the main talking points were in Italy, where the riders staged a protest over the length of the stage and ended up covering much of the distance in their team buses.

We hear from our audio diarists, James Knox, Rick Zabel, Joe Dombrowski and Cesare Benedetti, who describe the circumstances surrounding the protest and whether they think it was justified. We also check in with Daniel Friebe, who is at the Vuelta, where there was a second Irish win in as many days. After Dan Martin's success on Thursday, Sam Bennett sprinted to the victory on Friday.

Finally we look ahead to Saturday's penultimate and potentially decisive stage of the Giro, where Wilco Kelderman, Jai Hindley and Tao Geoghegan Hart take on three ascents of the Sestriere climb.
