Making fresh tracks
Wow.In 2016, his wife revealed that [Fignon] did not set foot on the Champs-Élysées for the rest of his life, even though he lived in Paris.
This was a great book about the '86 Tour: Slaying The Badger...I think '86 was even more dramatic with LeMond having to battle Hinault and his own team. His only help coming from a few sympathetic riders in the peloton - all after helping the Badger in '85 and being promised that '86 was his turn.
Hah. I was expecting people to talk about him (Lemond) when Roland Della Santa died earlier this year. Radar? Blip? Nuthin.Perhaps we should be talking about him again since he wasn't caught cheating.
Now the only American to win the Tour de France. What if he hadn’t been shot by a shotgun? And EPO didn’t come in the early 90’s?I remember people seemed to stop talking about LeMonde after Lance won his 3rd. Perhaps we should be talking about him again since he wasn't caught cheating.
