I`m glad someone picked up on this - it was so sad to hear the news yesterday. The cycling world has lost a big, big star and one of the great legends of the Tour de France
I remember that duel with Greg Lemond well - it was a classic and the closest finish ever on the Tour.
Greg Lemond turned it all around on the individual time trial on the penultimate day - heartbreak for Laurent Fignon.
He refused to wear the new aerodynamic helmet and some people say that his ponytail, blowing behind him in the wind, lost him vital seconds . . classic stuff.
RIP The professor (as he was known)
