  • socalrider909 has the cbs coverage of this stage in which the coach of
    Lemond/Hinault tells Greg a few times to don’t push the pace when Greg was
    ready to attack!

  • The interview in the wenck coverage is helpful (see below), but there is
    really just no way a teammate can do anything but follow the wheels when a
    team leader is in yellow. If Lemond had ridden a better first half of the
    Tour it might not have been an issue. Hinault created that team, I don’t

  • You will find this from the 1985 Tour de France CBS version. Try “wenck” or
    “Goliath Angel” for those uploads.

  • Brilliant and thanks for uploading. I have lots of Giro and TDF footage on
    VHS. Must convert them to digital. One question for all. Herrera better
    than Pantani?

  • If you do want to give the videos up I would be happy to take them off your
    hands 🙂

  • Ah I had contacted you before mate. I would prefer to keep them and once
    converted I wouldn’t mind sending you some 🙂

  • Shall I begin the inevitable debate here? Should Lemond have had to wait
    here? Should he have attacked anyway? Personally I think it was the right
    call from Koechli.

  • I probably said the same comment too! Happy to trade when they are done 🙂

  • it’s amazing to think just how “wrong” the commentary of liggett was!
    (@19.30). i’m still searching for the post race interview with lemond, when
    he was remonstrating about having to wait for hinault – turning mid way
    through to deliver the line “do you want a smack in the mouth” to an
    encroaching journo….

  • excellent. found it! thank you!! wenck – M2i9PRwVums from @1h 40m…..
