Marco Pantani's swashbuckling victory at Madonna di Campiglio in the 1999 Giro d'Italia should have been his crowning moment. Instead, the Italian was kicked out of the race while wearing the Maglia Rosa, ending the defence of his title and sending his career into freefall.
Brad shares his memories of 'Il Parata' as we take a look back at the Italian legend's tragic turning point with another episode of Re-Cycle, written by Felix Lowe, narrated by Graham Willgoss and produced by Pete Burton.
