episode 168: Stage 21 | Padron - Santiago de Compostela | Vuelta a España 2021

The Vuelta a España completed its three week pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela with Primoz Roglic the winner, and The Cycling Podcast was there to witness it.

The theme of this final episode from the Vuelta is pilgrims and we tell the story of the 2021 race in six parts, including the Movistar story – with an update on Miguel Angel Lopez's sensational withdrawal on the penultimate stage – Roglic, Jack Haig, Fabio Jakobsen and Egan Bernal.

We hear from some of the thousands who make the pilgrimage to this city, as well as riders including Bernal, Haig, Jakobsen, Joe Dombrowski and Scott Thwaites.
