Brad is joined by fellow Eurosport expert Brian Smith on a surprising day that saw EF Pro Cycling call for the Giro d’Italia to be brought to a halt early.
Eurosport exclusively revealed that EF Pro Cycling wrote a letter to the UCI and race organisers asking for the Giro d’Italia to be stopped after the second week of racing, and you can listen to Orla Chennaoui's special interview with the team's manager Jonathan Vaughters.
