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?

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.

Totally agree on both counts!
