ROBERT MILLAR. HE’S GOT IT ALL. ****ING SHAMALS, A KICK ASS LID, GARISH LYCRA, AND THE ABILITY TO ASCEND LIKE shoot OFF A SHOVEL. PLUS HE LOOKS LIKE AN OWL COUGHING UP A FURBALL. RESPECT.
SimonC said:Yes, big ring refers to riding in the biggest of the front chainrings, legs turning steadily and with style. Cruising at speed
As opposed to small chainring and high pedalling cadence. Getting nowhere fast.
Seems to be a few more photos added now. I am liking the track rider up on the advertising hoardings.
Nkaj said:k thanks... i was just thinking yesterday how much better it is to steadily plod along on a big gear rather than just thrashing about spose its all about building up all that muscle !
this is from the tour. The spectators were actually protesters that set up a road block. While the other riders slowed and tried to ride around them, Hinault accelerated straight into them !! Fist fight ensuedVikeonabike said:Love the picture of Hinault launching a spectator. "Wonder what he did wrong"
