mon hero

RIP, Laurent Fignon, who died yesterday after a long battle with pancreatic cancer. He was 50 years old. Perhaps defined more often for losing le tour by 8 seconds, the smallest margin in tour history, than for winning it two times or for his other victories in the Giro, he was my boyhood hero and it was the ambition of my life to one day meet him. Damn.

Chapeau, Mnsr Fignon, Le Professeur, a champion
