Graham Willgoss caught up with fan favourite Magnus Backstedt last week to talk all things Paris-Roubaix, but specifically his epic win in 2004.

In the absence of the Monument, which has been postponed to October 3rd, we bring you a bonus episode of Re-Cycle, Eurosport’s Cycling History podcast.

The Bradley Wiggins Show returns on the 19th of April.

Swedish powerhouse Magnus Backstedt felt so strong going toe-to-toe with Johan Museeuw in the Hell of the North, he even questioned whether there was a chain on his bike. Felix Lowe recalls the Lion of Flanders’ last major race, when a flat tyre stopped him sprinting for a record-equalling victory.

Re-Cycle is narrated by Graham Willgoss and produced by Pete Burton. This episode was edited by Ola Fisayo.
