Greg didn't drag the bunch up to Fignon. There was no finger wagging. Greg dropped the group, caught Fignon and dropped him on the way to the summit to catch the few guys that were still out in front. Bauer dragged the bunch up the hill and popped a tire on the way down the other side. A few cat and mouse shenanigans on the way down and LeMond took it in the sprint.Originally Posted by oldbobcat
Greg was pretty special to watch. Cycle Sport, the UK magazine, posted two articles on the 1989 Worlds last month. One is Sean Kelly's account. Finishes don't get better than this--Fignon jumps on the last hill, the only move he has left. Greg drags the group up to him, Fignon wags his finger at him: "You just trying to make me lose?" Kelly gets back on at the bottom of the hill, Greg leads out the sprint at 200m, and nobody can come around.
And then there's the textbook domination of the '83 Worlds.
I needs to gets me somes of those 'iron injections' that his soigneur Otto gave him. From the brink of retirement to insta-fast.
