    Finding Older Pro Footage

    Anyone know where we can find DVD (or VHS) copies from Hinault's, Fignon's, (and perhaps Merckx's) era? (Aside from La Course en Tete & Greatest Show on Earth. Got those.)

    I love the old Lemond vids and the Coors Classic Vids (with Alexi Grewal spitting at the cameraman and Davis Phinney's shamefully hilarious whining & temper tantrums) but I'd love to see more of the older stuff.

    Anything available out there besides the WCP dvd's?

    There's a couple of stores on eBay that sells these same videos. Most are the same prices, but some seemed a little cheaper.

    THANK YOU! (Don't know why I didn't think of that before.) Lot of Lance-chaff to wade through, but found a few gems too.

    Can you post links or the names of them? I'm interested, too.

    I had the best results with doing an Ebay search with terms like, "hinault dvd", "indurain dvd" and "giro d'italia dvd".
    Just be sure you're getting the NTSC-format DVD's. There were a lot of Australian sellers offering PAL dvds which won't work in the US.
