The penultimate stage and last in the mountains of the Vuelta a España saw a fierce battle among the main contenders with 20-year-old Tadej Pogacar winning his third stage to move up to third overall.
It means he will finish on the podium in Madrid on Sunday, with his fellow Slovenian Primoz Roglic on the top step and Alejandro Valverde in second.
Richard Moore, Daniel Friebe and Orla Chennaoui discuss the stage and also the controversy of the previous day. There are interviews with Philippe Gilbert and Rémi Cavagna of Deceuninck-Quickstep and with Pogacar’s manager at UAE-Team Emirates, Joxean Fernández Matxin. And there are the latest instalments of our rider diaries from Nick Schultz and James Knox.
