Re-Cycle: How Robert Millar lost the 'Stolen Vuelta' and finished second again one year later

Re-Cycle: The cycling history podcast

In 1985 and 1986, mercurial climber Robert Millar twice came one step away from becoming Britain’s first Grand Tour winner – only for a combination of bad luck, mismanagement, Machiavellian machinations and team alliances to thwart him. We remember how the Scot fell short of glory in controversial circumstances.

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