'Hell starts here' - When Jimenez won the first ascent of the Angliru

Re-Cycle: The cycling history podcast

The fearsome Angliru immediately became a Vuelta a España legend on its introduction to the race in 1999, when Spanish climber José María Jiménez was first to conquer the mountain. We remember a mythical win shrouded in fog and controversy.

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