Ah yes - 1990?

I was there too...standing somewhere near the Arc de Triomphe on that final stage, and yes one of the hottest days I can remember - what a day!

you're all very lucky indeed. i've never seen either of them although we rode our bikes over the finish line just a couple of days after the tour de france had passed over the alpe d'huez finish in 1990. we recreated the sprint finish from 200 yards out - i won both times. my claim to fame!!

:lol:

not sure of the year , but one of the Tour stages finished in my home town , Millau .
The stage finish was on top of a first cat climb with no space for team cars and buses . One of the physio of team RMO was local , and asked my neighbour , a petrol station, if RMO could park all their vehicules on the forecourt .

So we got to watch the entire stage in the RMO bus , and met all the riders after the stage .

great experience .

my neighbour agreed on a deal to buy a RMO team bike , liberia frame with Mavic Kit .
