Bernard Hinault – there was no tougher cyclist in his era, and likely never will be.
Laurent Fignon – only as I got older and understood the man better, did I fully appreciate him as a truly great cyclist, sports figure and personality.
Greg LeMond – A trail blazer, really believed in himself, and did it clean.
As team mates at Renault Elf in the early 80’s they cut quite a swath – some unquantifiable measure of cool, tough guy resolve, swashbuckling bravado, and talent.
They’re also the perfect inspiration for the 2013 PezCycling kit and could only be made by a company with legacy of equal grinta – Castelli of course.
The new designs are ready for pre-order, and my first batch will here by mid- to late-July. I’m later this year than usual, but that’s what building a new website as cool as the new PEZ will do… And I think the wait is worth it.
