donk said:In honour of the Tour and a local rider who has actually worn the yellow jersey, combined with my new digital camera, here are a few pictures of Steve Bauer, one of North America's greatest cyclists.
Wonder if Lance will be doing this in 15 years?
Bauer was one of my favorite racers back in the day. He had a couple of major disappointments in his career: Second place in the Olympics and a crash with Claude Criquelion in the final sprint of the '98 World Championships. Great sprinter!
I don't know about Lance doing races in 15 years, but he's doing this ride in September...and my wife signed me up for my birthday present! Whoo Hoo! I can't wait. Of course, if the ride sells out, there's 3,500 people vying to get close to Lance, so who knows if I'll get to actually meet the dude.
