There was another humdinger of a stage at the Vuelta a España and The Cycling Podcast was on the ground in Monforte de Lemos to speak to Lawson Craddock, who helped set up his teammate, Magnus Cort, for the win, as well as their sports director, Juanma Garate.
We also hear from the second- and third-placed riders, Rui Oliveira and Quinn Simmons. And we consider the different plights and fortunes of two teams, DSM and Bike Exchange, and hear from Nick Schultz of the latter.
We also get to the bottom of double stage winner Michael Storer's Scottish connection, and meet a man riding his 15th grand tour – a record for a Japanese cyclist – Yukiya Arashiro.
