The Vuelta a España tackled a new mountain, Alto d'El Gamoniteiru, at the end of stage 18 and Daniel Friebe and Richard Moore were at the summit to witness the riders coming across the line.
In this episode we hear from Gino Mader, who had an important role looking after his team leader, Jack Haig, while also cementing his own position in the top ten on general classification. We hear from Haig, too, as well as the overall leader, Primoz Roglic.
At the other end of the race, Matt Holmes crossed the line alone and over 48 minutes down, outside the time limit and out of the race. We hear from Holmes at the start of the stage, where he talks about being unwell and his daily battle just to stay in the Vuelta.
