Re-Cycle: The cycling history podcast
When Federico Bahamontes gifted the 1957 Vuelta to rival Jesus Lorono
In this episode of Re-Cycle, we re-count when Federico Bahamontes blew a 16-minute lead to hand his big rival Jesús Loroño the yellow jersey on a plate
It was one of cycling's bitterest rivalries and that fateful Vuelta 1957 took things to a new level.
But there’s much more than there seems to a story that blends social, political, economic, sporting and personal conflict.
Re-Cycle is written by Felix Lowe, narrated by Graham Willgoss, and produced by Pete Burton.
