episode 167: Stage 20 | Sanxenxo > Mos | Vuelta a España 2021

The penultimate stage of the 2021 Vuelta a España served up a feast of exciting and dramatic racing and The Cycling Podcast was there to see it.
In this episode we hear from two of the day's winners, Jack Haig and Gino Mader of the Bahrain Victorious team, while Patxi Vila and Enric Mas of Movistar reflect on the shocking withdrawal of a rider who started the day sitting third overall, "Superman" Miguel Ángel López.

Richard Moore and Daniel Friebe discuss Ineos Grenadier's disruptive tactics and Bahrain's decisiveness in taking advantage of the disruption. And we toast the day's unlikely stage winner, Clément Champoussin of the French Ag2r team.
