    Nice pics from the highlights of Stephen's career

    However one pic is strange for me.

    Picture, top row, second from right:
    PODIUM HOMMES ET FEMMES
    MARIA CANIN, BERNARD HINAULT, STEPHEN ROCHE, GREG LEMON, SEAN KELLY, JEANNIE LONGO - 21/07/1987
    TOUR DE FRANCE 1987

    Roche won the tour in 87. But Lemond was already out that year and Hinault retired.
    Why are they on the podium with him in their team colours?

    The pic is from '85, when Roche finished 3d.

    Only one of those riders is still an active rider. Who is this rider?

    One of my all time favourite sporting moments is Kelly celebrating in the background as Roche crosses the line in Villach to become World Champion.

    And one of the greatest regrets I have as a sports fan is that Kelly never won the Rainbow jersey. Feckin legend all the same.
