Sorry about all that. I don't know what came over me but, I'm glad I have got it off my chest.

I loved Pantani. Such a tragic story as well.

lol nonsense!! think about it. bauer had chased like a maniac (you simply must see the whole race - it's spectacular!) breaking away from the chasing bunch with about 5 miles to go. he closed that gap to criq and fondriest within sight of the finish line and then they all started playing cat and mouse. bauer's legs must have been almost spent just getting on to those guys' wheels and for them to start sprinting with him hardly even having caught his breath must have been impossible to compete with.

watch closely again. you'll see bauer going for it and his legs start to mash the pedals - criq comes up the inside and bauer is looking under his right armpit and sees him coming in between him and the barriers. watch bauer as he then moves his front wheel toward the barrier as criq is clearly coming thru like a train!! he knows the belgian is going to go past him and then of course the last resort comes - the elbow! it's a shame but a desperate act from someone who's just spent almost seven hours in the saddle. i would probably have done the same - auto pilot - finish line in sight - you're not getting past me - this is my race - get back jo-jo!
brilliant! :twisted:

4.35 a spectator twats him on the head...

just picked up this thread, thanks everyone for putting these up, much better than Call The Midwife! I'll keep an eye out for a few of my own. The High life doc of Robert Millar springs to mind, and there is also one from the eighties that starts with Phil Ligget in a mac like Dick Tracey, he turns walks away and is faded out.....magic! I'll post if I find it :D

The high life was removed from YouTube when it was re-issued on DVD a few years back

this is the theme tune that i'll forever associate with the tour:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UUTyzmP4H90

this is when i first discovered pro cycling and was hooked from then on.
phil's commentary and those blurry images were the stuff of legend and this
stage in particular will stick in my mind forever - incredible!

even now i still have phil's quote at 17:43 mins in my head when i struggle
uphill on the old bike!!

:shock: 8)
