Nice shots of Eddy, looks like he is gaining, must be that Belgium chocolate ice cream. BTW, I was
able to make LP 4 hour, secam-pal conversions no problem for around $10 US, at least two companies I
know can do it. If that's common for French, not a problem for me.

One of the joys of the duo normand http://wwwduonormand.com 2up time trial in France, apart from
competing on the same course as the pro's is the chance to look up and spot Eddy or Frederico
Bahamontes amongst other greats wandering down the road. Eddy had lost quite a lot of weight but
from these photos it looks like he's put it back on again. All The Best

Makes me wonder how many retired notable Pros you find wondering down the road in the TDF stages!

Bruce The Duo is great, many many english riders compete and then the pro's finish the day off. Not
many pro's last year but it was won by Pozzato and Petrov of Mapei. The organizers always have some
great names present. In 2001 to celebrate the 21st running of the event they had every living holder
of the hour record on hand. Its a wonderful friendly way to finish the season. We did the course in
1:36 and the winners were half an hour faster!

I have seen some Pros on my videos at the women's Pro races too, on hand to offer support. Indurain
for one, and I am sure several others.

Roger De Vlaeminck at a cafe at the base of Alpe d'Huez wasn't a bad catch a couple years ago...
and, unlike some former pros, he looked exceptionally fit. Very nice guy too (unfortunately the only
thing I could come up with for him to sign was a paper napkin).
