With the queen stage of the Giro d'Italia shortened by 60km, two major climbs removed and no TV pictures, the job of The Cycling Podcast after stage 16 was to piece together what happened.
Richard and Daniel were at the finish in Cortina to speak to some of the protagonists and make sense of a stage that cemented Egan Bernal's status as the favourite to win the Giro in Milan on Sunday.
In tonight's episode we hear from our diarist, James Knox, the EF sports director Charly Wegelius and his rider Tejay van Garderen, Trek-Segafredo general manager Luca Guercilena, a resurgent Romain Bardet and the Bahrain Victorious pair of Damiano Caruso and Pello Bilbao.
