episode 143: Stage 6 | Requena – Alto de la Montaña de Cullera | Vuelta a España 2021

The wind may not have blown particularly hard but it took only a gentle sea breeze and some narrow roads to create some Classic-style racing at the Vuelta a España.
In this episode, Daniel Friebe has descended the Alto de la Montaña de Cullera in order to check in with Richard Moore and Lionel Birnie to recap stage six of the race which saw another change of leadership.
But which Classic did the race resemble? Would Magnus be Cort or Not Cort at the finish? And what next for Movistar now they have manoeuvered their trident into position behind Primoz Roglic? We try to provide the answers. We also hear from King Kenny, Jack Haig and Jens Keukeleire.
