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
