Alexi Grewal - Trying to come back into racing. Has done some races, not winning, yet, though. Carpenter by trade.
Sean Kelly - Manages (?) or at least lends his name to a pro-team out of Ireland; color-commentary for Euro-Sport.
The other two,
Roche lives in France and owns a hotel there, and of course supports his son and nephew, both World-Tour pros (Nicholas Roche and Dan Martin)
Phinney living with Parkinson's disease, working his foundation and supporting his soon-to-be-world-beating-son. Still married to Olympic Gold Medalist Connie Carpenter Phinney
Hinault freaked out, and wondered if his 5 titles would ever be remembered, and Miguel Indurain is in an insane asylum.

Sean Kelly is the cycling color commentator on Eurosport.
No worriesYeah, I could have left this one alone. Sorry.
Actually he is black, he can say whatever he wants about blacks and use the word black too.
"Jimmy Rabbitte: Do you not get it, lads? The Irish are the blacks of Europe. And Dubliners are the blacks of Ireland. And the Northside Dubliners are the blacks of Dublin. So say it once, say it loud: I'm black and I'm proud. "
How about these cats:
Fignon died recently.
Bauer runs team Spidertech.
Heiden is a doctor.
Marco Pantani "The Pirate" died of a cocaine overdose.
Miguel Indurain retired and runs his cycling foundation in Spain.
Hampsten is alive & well. Lives in Italy. Owns/runs Cingiahle (sp?) Bike tour company. Met him recently. Definitely quiet personality, but always willing to talk w/us fat cyclists as he easily drops us up the climbs.
Fignon died of cancer. Not sure what type.
Andy runs a bike touring company in Italy where he is still quite popular, and he also co-owns a bike shop. Here is the website of the shop: http://www.hampsten.com/
Laurent Fignon passed, but not before he released a very good book called, "We Were Young and Carefree."
Raul Alcala, believe it or not, won the 2010 Mexican national TT championship in his mid- forties.
Sean Kelly, as well as being the colour commentator for Eurosport, does various cycling-related stuff including charity work. And he has the distinction of being my favourite cyclist ever, an unbelievably tough competitor. I remember my own incredulity when he won Paris-Nice seven times in a row. "he can't be going to do it again, can he? Yes, he can." Amazing.
There have been many days when I haven't felt like riding, but there has never been a day when I was sorry I rode.
Seven times? he can say whatever he wants then
Many times the most talented ones are really out of their minds.
LOL, what the heck did he(Alexei) say? I cant understand what he said.Many times the most talented ones are really out of their minds.
Stupid question I know: Diablo posted a vid from the 'Tour De Trump", how long did this event stick around, why didnt it become more successful, and do you think it will ever return?
