It was another first ascent for the Vuelta a España as the riders tackled La Cubilla, the so-called “Galibier of Asturias.” We hear what some of them made of it once they’d reached the summit as Jakob Fuglsang won the stage ahead of Tao Geoghegan Hart, who was on the attack for the second day in a row.

Richard Moore and Daniel Friebe discuss the action and we hear from yesterday’s stage winner Sepp Kuss, his Jumbo-Visma teammate George Bennett, and our diarists, James Knox and Nick Schultz. Knox had a particularly successful day, featuring in the break and moving up to 11th overall.
