S10 Ep47: Stage 12 | Parma – Genoa | Giro d’Italia 2022

The Cycling Podcast

19-05-2022 • 1 hr 3 mins

Daniel Friebe, Lionel Birnie and Brian Nygaard in a sunny square in Genoa after stage 12 of the Giro d’Italia.

We go on the hunt for focaccia, break down the way the breakaway captured the stage and ask whether a win for a team’s established superstar is worth ‘more’ in terms of PR than a victory by a less well-known rider.

Brian also talks about being team manager of Leopard-Trek when the Belgian rider Wouter Weylandt died in a crash at the 2011 Giro. Today’s stage went over the Passo del Bocco, where the accident happened.

Amaraterra provide our theme song, Cozze, and other music for The Cycling Podcast’s coverage of the Giro d’Italia. Their Bandcamp page is here: https://amaraterra.bandcamp.com/
