'Second doesn't exist' - When Backstedt denied Museeuw in his final Paris-Roubaix

Re-Cycle: The cycling history podcast

Swedish powerhouse Magnus Backstedt felt so strong going toe-to-toe with Johan Museeuw in 2004’s Hell of the North, he even questioned whether there was a chain on his bike. Felix Lowe recalls the Lion of Flanders’ last major race, when a flat tyre stopped him sprinting for a record-equalling victory.

Re-Cycle is narrated by Graham Willgoss and produced by Pete Burton. This episode was edited by Ola Fisayo.
