The first mountain stage of the Vuelta a España was contested by the breakaway, with the stage and red jersey of overall leader going to Rein Taaramae, the Estonian on the Intermarché team.
Daniel Friebe and Richard Moore discuss the stage and what we learned, and we hear from Kenny Elissonde, who was third on the stage, and Primoz Roglic, the deposed leader.
Daniel speaks to Hugh Carthy and Robert Gesink about the art of positioning in the bunch and we hear from Gino Mader about his initiative to raise money for an environmental organisation by donating a Euro for every rider he beats on each stage.
