|Pantani: The Accidental Death of a Cyclist: In nineteen ninety-eight Marco Pantani, the most flamboyant and popular cyclist of his era, won both the Tour de France and Giro
d'Italia, a titanic feat of physical and mental endurance that no rider has repeated since. He was a hero to millions, the saviour of cycling following the doping scandals which
threatened to destroy the sport. However, less than six years later, aged just 34, he died alone, in a cheap hotel room, from acute cocaine poisoning.
