    1986 was quite a battle between Hinault & Lemond. A good look at how hard Lemond had it breaking into the Tour. Their team split it's support between the two. A soap on & off the bike.
    1989 Fignon & Lemond swapped the lead every other day. Fignon had the tour wrapped up going into Paris with 58 sec. in hand. Lemond toasted him in the TT to win the Tour by 8 seconds & set a record TT speed that stands until today.

    Thanks for that - I had almost forgotten what a mouth, what an attitude LeMond had! Also a great stroll down memory lane - I loved watching LeMond, Hinault, and Fignon back in those days (I was in my early 20's), inspiring me to ride harder in the hot, humid Indiana summers in my leather bike shoes and wool shorts with a real chamois...

    Do you have this on DVD? I'll try some generic web searching for these... thanks again.

    If there was a video for it I would state the 1987 Tour Roche and Delgado was an epic clash that lasted until the last day.

    I would go with '89. A great battle till the very last day, check it out HERE

    I agree with Ih8lucky13, I wish they would bring out the '87 tour on DVD, it seems largely forgotten about but was truely one of the great tours IMO.

    Here's a fun 9 minutes of YouTube worth watching... TT with LeMond and Fignon. Wow.

    As Ih8lucky13 points out 87 is a great tour. I just watched the 1985 tour. Lemond was strong & could have won but played second to Hinault.
