The Giro d’Italia sparked into life on stage 13 as the first summit finish saw Ilnur Zakarin win and haul himself back into overall contention.

Behind him, Mikel Landa, Richard Carapaz, Vincenzo Nibali and Primoz Roglic all impressed as Simon Yates lost time.

In the podcast we hear from Landa, his sports director Max Sciandri, Zakarin’s sports director Dimitri Konyshev, and also from Marco Haller, who found himself the ‘star’ of a video clip that went viral on social media.
