In the final Grand Tour audiobook from the 2018 season Lionel Birnie and Richard Moore share their diaries from the Vuelta a España.

While Simon Yates recovered from his Giro collapse to win, Lionel endured the scorching heat and appalling rental cars of southern Spain before abandoning with Dan Martin, but before Rohan Dennis.

Richard considers which of these early exits was most acceptable, while braving the cold, rain and thistles of northern Spain, falling victim to the Wolfpack in Santillana del Mar, being snubbed by Michal Kwiatkowski and taken to task by Tao Geoghegan Hart.
