Mystery 14: Death on Two Wheels

00:0000:00

This Friday we're talking about the cyclists who died under strange circumstances.

Ana begins with a brief explanation of road cycling to add context to the strange demise of Ottavio Bottecchia, a double Tour de France winner. The Italian cyclist was found dead at the roadside after heading out for a morning ride. Was it a competitor, the government or a farmer upset about his grapes?

Jonatan then shares the infamous Green Bicycle case involving 21-year-old Bella Wright who meets an unfortunate end during her cycle home. Witnesses report seeing a stranger on a green bicycle who's thought to be the last person to have seen her alive. Things get even stranger when the bike shows up dismantled and dumped in a canal 6 months later. Is the owner of the bicycle guilty or just worried of being falsely accused?
