36: Stage 4 | Orbetello to Frascati | Giro d’Italia 2019
Listen now
For the second day in a row, the Giro d’Italia served up crash-related drama in the final half dozen kilometres. Join Lionel Birnie and Daniel Friebe for a glass of Frascati after the finish of stage four as they discuss who lost and who gained. The stage was won by Movistar’s Ecuadorian rider Richard Carapaz, who won a stage in impressive style last year. We hear from Australian Caleb Ewan of Lotto-Soudal who was one of only a dozen or so to dodge both late crashes and who set off in pursuit of Carapaz in the final three hundred metres. We ask whether Tom Dumoulin’s crash means the end of not just his Giro d’Italia hopes but his participation in the race, we hear from Team Ineos’s Tao Geogheghan Hart about the time he lost yesterday, Gianni Savio reveals his formation for the stage and we taste some Frascati wine, some wine that’s not Frascati and a local delicacy, a three-breasted honey-bread woman.
