When Cadel Evans rode through the mud to pip Vino at Montalcino

Re-Cycle: The cycling history podcast

It’s rightly gone down as one of the most legendary stages in the Giro d’Italia: when the race hit Tuscany’s Strade Bianche amid a deluge of rain turning the usually dusty affair into a mud slick.

Stage 7 of the 2010 Corsa Rosa, saw world champion, Cadel Evans prove too powerful for Alexandre Vinokourov, as the Australian called on all his strengths to come away with the win.

“That win really stands out as one of my favourite victories because it really encapsulated everything about me as a rider – my career, my mountain bike background, the preparation of equipment down to the Paris-Roubaix wheels I used. It really encapsulated my team, how I was as a rider, and everything”.

Felix Lowe recalls a chaotic day’s racing and conditions so grim, you could barely tell one rider from the next.

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