I remember back in 1988, when you couldn't get any coverage of pro cycling beyond the Tour in the States. I knew Andy Hampsten had won the Giro, but hadn't seen a write-up or pics. Winning Magazine arrived and it had roughly this picture on the front, with a seemingly all-confident Hampsten about to clinch the race. What a classic photo:
