Episode notes

Sir Brad is joined by Graham Willgoss to pick apart the Queen Stage of the Vuelta a España, and an explosive GC battle that saw Egan Bernal light the blue touch paper but Primoz Roglic emerge as red hot favourite to take his Spanish Grand Tour hat-trick.


The brutal climb to the finish at Lagos de Covadonga set the stage for, in Brad's words, "an amazing finish, an amazing winner" as Jumbo-Visma's main man streaked away to ride back to the top of the GC standings and put his rivals almost out of sight.


Huge credit, though, goes to Ineos Grendadiers' Bernal for animating the race and attacking with 60km to of the stage remaining.


"If it wasn't for him, Roglic would have had to make those moves on his own," says Brad. "[But] to go out there with Primoz Roglic and give it his all and fade in the final, I think that might be the last we see of Bernal this race in terms of GC aspirations.


"Roglic was on another level today. He now has a dominant lead, and even though he wasn't in the Red Jersey last week, we always knew this day would come."
