The Giro d’Italia was turned on its head after a third consecutive day of attacking, exciting and unpredictable racing.

Join Richard Moore, Lionel Birnie and Daniel Friebe in Courmayeur as they discuss stage 14, which saw the pink jersey change hands, but perhaps not in the way it was expected.

Many were expecting Primoz Roglic to inherit the jersey from his Slovenian compatriot Jan Polanc but it was the stage winner Richard Carapaz who sprung a surprise, gaining almost two minutes to take the pink jersey by seven seconds.

We hear from Carapaz’s Movistar sports director Max Sciandri and from Roglic’s sports director Addy Engels. Plus there’s reaction from Rafal Majka, confirmation of the reasons behind Bauke Mollema’s scheduled stop on the road the other day, Joe Dombrowski’s verdict on arguably his best two days as a grand tour rider and a word from the gruppetto from Irish champion Conor Dunne.
