When Floyd Landis did the impossible on the road to Morzine

Re-Cycle: The cycling history podcast

In this episode of Re-Cycle, we look back on a ride that really was too good to be true.

A day after handing the initiative to Oscar Pereiro for a second time following an implosion at La Toussuire, Floyd Landis turned the 2006 Tour upside down.

Going clear on the first of five climbs 120km from Stage 17’s finish, Landis blew his rivals away with an unbelievable solo win in Morzine to revive his yellow jersey bid.

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