Scott Thwaites is at the Vuelta a España as part of one of the most successful Grand Tour teams, Alpecin-Fenix. But it's something of a miracle that he's here at all, after a crash in 2018 left him with a broken spine, neck, ribs and sternum.
He raced domestically in the UK in 2019 before returning to the big time last year. In this episode he tells us about his crash and comeback.
He’s 31 now and out of contract at the end of the year, but in the meantime he is relishing the experience of being back at his first Grand Tour since his accident and in a team that – even without its star, Mathieu van der Poel – has continued its winning ways at the Vuelta.
