'Hell starts here' - When Jimenez won the first ascent of the Angliru

Re-Cycle: The cycling history podcast

The fearsome Angliru immediately became a Vuelta a España legend on its introduction to the race in 1999, when Spanish climber José María Jiménez was first to conquer the mountain. We remember a mythical win shrouded in fog and controversy.

Re-Cycle is written by Felix Lowe, narrated by Graham Willgoss and produced by Pete Burton.

That's it for our 2020 run - we will be back for more trips down cycling's memory lane in 2021 but if you enjoyed this season of Re-Cycle, please do rate and review us on your podcast platform of choice.
