Roche!

Roche on his way to victory
in the TT at Futuroscope, 1987 Tour.



Stephen Roche is 52 years old today.

Well known for his 1987 season as a season to remember: Tour de France, Giro d'Italia and World Road Race Championship.

The Irishman was exemplary on the bike at times pushing himself to near exhaustion. I remember that lung busting ride up La Plagne, in the 1987 Tour, against Delgado. What a heroic ride winning Ireland's first Tour de France!
