Did you guys hear Sherwen say that Lemond and Hinault rode up l'Alpe together yesterday? Man, how awesome would that have been to see as you were killing time on the road, waiting for the race? But I'm sure that, like most things, Sherwen got the story wrong. HAH!

Yep, can you imagine how long it took them to ride it, people must have been going crazy seeing them.

one of my other favorites is 1992 when Hampsten conquered the EPO era for just a moment

Wow Greg looks even worse, he looks terrible. Seriously bro get yer $4ite together, you're in your early 50's you should be able to ride the Alp easily, can you imagine Ned v. Greg, lmao.

86 was the best tour ever perhaps.

those guys still look pretty good as far as I am concerned. not everyone just keeps riding hard like Ned.

Or OC, dude LeMond with your body could probably be winning races to this day.

read somewhere that he still struggles with the lead pellets. All-time nice guy award winner.

My favorite Trek dealer meetings were the ones he would hijack, he's a trip

I did hear PS say that but did not see it since I record the early broadcasting. Holly crap thou, he has ballooned up nicely in the past few years, what the heck happened. I almost did not recognize him, but it was nice to see them ride together. Yesterday's stage was one of the best stage races I had seen in a long time. Who is board now?


Don't wanna know what happened today. I'll find out tonight.

Damn few ex-pros don't put on significant weight after they retire. They keep consuming a lot of calories without the burn they had previously.

And Hinault is hardly Skinny Benny in that video.

Just say "NO!" to WCP!!!!

Have you seen Bob Roll lately? The guy is pro race thin again. Pretty impressive to maintain that fitness.

And Eddie Mercxx post-retirement did a Michelin Man impersonation for a while, too.
