Roche vs Delgado 1987

I remember watching this on TV back in 1987! One of the greatest duel in the history of Tour de France between the great Irish Stephen Roche (2nd best after Sean Kelly , of course) and the Spaniard Pedro Delgado on to La Plagne stage. Back then, Tour de France was not covered on daily basis but only shown on ABC Wide World of Sport every week. The 1987 Tour was eventually won by Roche because he is a better time trialist than Delgado who failed to gain more time during this stage. Delgado later won the tour in 1988.

I was inspired to take up cycling after watching this!
