'That was my best chance' – When Adrie van der Poel denied Sean Kelly in Flanders

Re-Cycle: The cycling history podcast

Thirty-four years before Mathieu van der Poel won the Tour of Flanders, his father pipped Sean Kelly to the line. Felix Lowe turns back the clock to 1986, and the race in which the Irishman would come closest to glory in the only Monument that would forever elude him.

Re-Cycle is narrated by Graham Willgoss and produced by Pete Burton.
