Laurent Fignon

May you find peace and happiness on the other side. I may have rooted for Lemond back then, but I always respected you as a cyclist and thought you were one of the greats.
Via con dios!

In the day I had a mad crush on Laurent... he was my favorite rider for many, many years, probably still is. I was so sorry to hear of his illness. So glad his pain is now gone and his memory can LiveStong. Last of the truly classy racers...

A very sad flip side to the Lance story...even though we've come a long way in treating cancer, even a 50-year old ex-pro cyclist can succumb. RIP, LF.
