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.

Brad steps off the bike after Stage 16 of the Tour de France to talk over the day's events with Graham Willgoss in Toulouse – Brad's home when he first signed for the Linda McCartney Racing Team.

Bernie’s not so sure: "Riders, when they pu…
 
Sir Brad and Graham Willgoss look back on Stage 14 of the Tour de France, and Bauke Mollema's 40km lone attack that saw him climb to victory in the foothills of the Pyrenees.

Brad and Graham Willgoss look back on Stage 12 of the Tour de France into Nîmes, when Bora-Hansgrohe's Nils Politt attacked off the front of the break to take a solo win on the day that Peter Sagan dropped out of the race.

Brad and Graham catch up after another day on the bike for Brad, which gave him the perfect vantage point to see Tony Martin crash for Jumbo-Visma. However, Van Aert brought…
 
Brad and Graham Willgoss chew over Stage 10 of the Tour de France – and another brilliant win for Mark Cavendish. “It was textbook,” says Brad. “They’ve got it down to a T now… The team were amazing with him… He sounded in a right hole on the rest day. The fastest man in the world again? I don’t think there’s a single person in the peloton who’s no…

Brad and Graham Willgoss look back on another rip-roaring day at the Tour de France that saw AG2R-Citroën's Ben O'Connor solo to a brilliant stage win that cut Tadej Pogacar's lead on GC to just two minutes.
