    Neat pictures. Hard to believe that if it returned Longo could probably come back and be in the leaders jersey again over 25 years later.

    Hard to believe 1984 was that long ago, seems like yesterday.

    Grewal, Carpenter, Phinney and Keifel still live in Colorado and most of them are very active in cycling yet.

    Most likely it was 9 or below.


    This just goes to show that it has just about nothing to do with the bike but all to do with the legs
