a shame only a few use the drops for climbing this days, i can only think of nibali, evans and valverde and even them is only every once in a while and not all the time like ricco.

I love this one for 3 reasons:

1) It's Robert Millar and he was also first over every other climb of the day (the last of the great climbers?);

2) Greg cracking big style and Fignon digging deep sprinting for the line;

3) Hampsten, catching and passing Greg without a thought of helping him.

OK, make that four. I've still got a Z Jersey that fits

The end of the 1980 Olympic Road Race at Krylatskoye Ring, the biggest international triumph of Sergei Suchorutschenkow, probably the eastern bloc's greatest climber. More for historical purposes than anything else, since the video doesn't actually show how he came to build that 3 minute lead (or how Barinov and Lang came to be several minutes up on the bunch either).
I think Soukho and Barinov, among other Soviets, if they came to the West, could have dominated

Not 16.

Just TT and Madrid after that stage. So I guess 19 or 20.

Just watchin this makes me exhausted; 7.5 hours in the saddle (for the winner), everyman for himself, ridiculous timegaps, no grupetto whatsoever.
