You can see Djamolodine Abdujaparovs amazing crash on the final stage of the 1992 Tour De F on Youtube. He was in a bunch tearing down the Champs- elysees when he hit large coke advertising bottle and summersaulted into the bunch. I think that other great sprinter of the time Olaf Ludwig also crashed out. As far as I know there were no serious injuries. It has gone down in Le Tour folklore. Other great memories are the "and just who is that rider...it looks like Stephen Roche!" La Plange stage when Roche miraculously pulled back from the brink to nearly catch Pedro Delgado in 1987. There is loads of amazing Le tour stuff. The Armstrong Pantani duel to the top of Mt ventoux is quite amazing and the 8 second Greg LeMond victory over Lauent Fignon on the final time trial stage in Paris. I remember the L' Alpe Duez stage in 1989 which was won by the rockstar like Dutchman Gert Jan Theunisse and the huge crowds on the slopes mainly Dutch to cheer on Theunisse and fellow Dutch PDM team mate Stephen Rooks. The 80's for me was the gold era of the Tour de France with so many characters and the wonderful coverage on Channel 4. I look forward to the 2008 event and the other classic races as well. I enjoyed the Tour of Poland last year.
