Welcome to the VeloNews cycling podcast, where we discuss the latest trends, news, and controversies in the world of cycling.

What just happened? Chris Froome blew up the Giro d’Italia’s GC in stage 19 Friday. Simon Yates is out of pink. Chris Froome is in it. And poor Tom Dumoulin is left chasing another Englishman.

We recap the action, hear from Froome at the post-stage press conference, and have some takes and analysis about Froome’s performance. Was it his best ever? Was it believable? All that and more.

This episode of the VeloNews podcast is sponsored by Smith Optics, which outfitted us with the Session helmet and Attack Max sunglasses for the Epic Rides mountain bike series.
