Another packed episode of The Cycling Podcast from the Giro d’Italia comes from the shores of Lake Como after stage 15.

Richard Moore, Lionel Birnie and Daniel Friebe recap a day during which the two-man break stayed clear to contest the finish – although they only stayed away by 11 seconds in the end.

The victory went to Dario Cataldo ahead of his breakaway companion Mattia Cattaneo but they had Simon Yates, Hugh Carthy, pink jersey wearer Richard Carapaz and Vincenzo Nibali roaring up the finish straight behind them.

Where was Primoz Roglic? Well, that was the big question of the day and we try to sort out what happened with his bike change and ask where his Jumbo-Visma team car was at the crucial moment.
