On the day that stage 19 of the Giro d'Italia begins in his home town, we take a look at a rider upon whose broad shoulders the hopes of Italian cycling seem to rest.
Filippo Ganna is the world champion who on Sunday in Milan will be the favourite to win his fifth Giro time trial in a row. In this episode we speak to some of his rivals, including Edoardo Affini of Jumbo-Visma, to Rod Ellingworth, who works with Ganna at Ineos Grenadiers, and to Luca Gialanella of Gazzetta dello Sport.
And we hear from Victor Campenaerts, the world hour record holder, on how the emergence of Ganna forced him to abandon time trialling. Finally, we hear from the man himself – Filippo Ganna.
