Il Sanguinaccio Volante

In the eighth episode of Kilometre 0 from the Giro d’Italia we speak to people who’ve known Simon Yates since he was a youngster as well as teammates here at the Giro. His first coach, Frances Newstead, tells us that when she sees him battling with Tom Dumoulin in the mountains of Italy she is reminded of the 14-year-old Yates on a mountain biking trip to Wales. Matt White explains how Yates and his brother Adam came to join Mitchelton-Scott, while Jack Haig, his roommate at the Giro, reveals his sleeping habits.
