The one who guessed it right is supposed to post another Victory Salute (VS) for us to guess...
AND you are not allowed to right click the pic and retrace the source to identify it!
Correct, Andrei Tchmil... He always looked like someone kicked him out of a wheelchair and forced him to ride the cobbled classics, hunched over and grimaced, but which he did with such a fervor and passion. He fought many a great battle with Johan Museeuw, and I remember his PR win in 1994 well... this picture however was taken right before he announced his retirement in the tour of Belgium 2002. He beat Vinoukorov in a sprint of two in stage three.lookkg386 said:Could be making a fool af myself here, but is it Andre Tshmil(?) , he won P-R mid 90's I think...............or I could be totally wrong
I am pretty sure Roberto Conti did that pose in 1994 when he won Alpe'Huez. Although I believe it was not in dedication of a baby, but an 'answer' to a Brazilian player after the WC football final a couple of days earlier. Memory is a bit vague, though.Notso Swift said:Neil Stephens rocking the baby in 98, led to way too many of those silly silly postures
EDIT no cant be 98 because of Festina, must have been 96 or 97
