1987 World Cycling Championships Finish

While it is a very hard and sometimes very cruel profession, my love for the bike remains as strong now as it was in the days when I first discovered it. I am convinced that long after I have stopped riding as a professional I will be riding my bicycle. I never want to abandon my bike. I see my grandfather, now in his seventies and riding around everywhere. To me that is beautiful. And the bike must always remain a part of my life.

Great video. I started following the sport in 1990, so I missed many of the great races and stars of the 80s. I just found the La Plagne stage video on YouTube where Roche needed oxygen at the finish. Epic!
