In today's episode of the Cyclingnews podcast, brought to you in association with Sportful, Pinarello and Floyd's of Leadville, we look back at stage 2 of the Tour Down Under. Patrick Bevin (CCC Team) stole the show with a blistering turn of speed to win the stage and the Kiwi now leads the race from Elia Viviani by five seconds, but for the second day in a row Bevin has stolen a march on the pre-race GC riders and has a 15-second buffer on the likes of Daryl Impey, Richie Porte and Rohan Dennis. Game over?

We hear from Bevin, Matt White and Caleb Ewan, who finished second, before previewing stage 3 and a crucial day that could see Bevin's team stretched to their limit. We have an actual race on our hands.
