39.95 AUD
Stuart O'Grady is one of Australia's best-loved cyclists with a long and successful career in cycling for Australia and as a professional road cyclist. The record holder for most starts in a Tour de France ever, as well as an Olympic gold medallist and winner of the Green Jersey on four occasions, O'Grady is one of cycling's most respected stars. But in 2013, following his retirement, Stuart made a shock announcement: he had used EPO, a performance enhancing drug, in the 1998 Tour de France.

For a cyclist renowned for his strength and determination, this was a shocking blow to his reputation and his hard won legacy. Starting his career as a teenager O'Grady worked tirelessly to rise to the top of elite cycling.
