INTERVIEW: Sam Bennett was piloted to another Vuelta a España stage win on Thursday's stage 9 by Michael Mørkøv, but the UCI had other ideas. Ed Hood managed to 'have a word' with the best lead-out in the business on the Vuelta's first rest day, before Bennett's second victory was taken from him.

As every year, Ed Hood is welded to the TV for every pedal stroke of the Tour de France. Of course there's the massive disappointment of not being 'Roadside' in 2020 (damn Covid-19), but he's ever eagle-eyed for the each day's 'real' story. Take it away Ed...
