It’s July, 1986 and the greatest ever Tour de France is unfolding before our eyes.
After the young American Greg LeMond paced Hinault back into the peloton during last year’s race, we have no doubt that Hinault will keep his word to help LeMond win the Tour this year.
You’ll find our coverage of the 1986 Tour on this site beginning in late June. Stay tuned for further dispatches from our man in France, cycling journalist Richard Moore.
Follow along on Twitter @1986Tour, on Facebook, or here on the book’s website SlayingtheBadger.com, where we will give daily race reports from Richard Moore, Geoff Drake and his team at Velo-news, and carefully selected video footage from YouTube.
