Second placed Giant-Castelli risks closing if they don't find a sponsor tomorrow.

Well, I didn't watch - was focused on that little race up in Bergen - but... why would they even let two pairs of the same team start after each other?
They didn't start after each other, because the difference between both teams at the line was exactly 6 minutes. So, in all likelihood, Team 1 (Vachon, Gerard) hid themselves behind a house or something and waited for Team 2 (Perichon, Delaplace) to come along and just joined in.

Since Lombardia is coming is worth mentioning that Rebellin's first was in 1992, an edition won by Tony Rominger. He finished 9th.

neo-pro finishing 9th in arguably the most brutally hard ridden Lombardia in history (it's that or 1979).
Heh. And to think by age 30 there was arguing that he was a failed former wonderkid

Personally, I'd remember more fondly that Sammie Moreels finished at the exact same place the year before and that as a neopro he was 4th and 5th and the Walloon Arrow and Liège-Bastogne-Liège respectively and that by age 30 there was indeed arguing that he was a failed former wonderkid. But we know all what happened. :(

Interesting profiles in those years. Quite different from today's race.
