Thanks Stella for setting this issue straight. Looks like it was from a stage and NOT from a rest day ride.

All I know is Pozzato might have the most unintentionally amusing Instagram. Hello bad tattoos.

I stand by my original comment.

Thierry Mertens wrote 'We, Greg LeMond Fans, did a research on this picture. It took us a long time to figure out what is going on here. It appears that this is from the stage where Greg had a flat on the Col de Marie Blanque. I also thought this for a long time and it's normal everybody does. But then we were looking at the details of the picture. Greg is dealing with his front wheel and uses a tool from his little sack (black thing on the ground). He carried that when he was on training. There is no bottle on the bike. Even he's not wearing gloves. The environment is also different. I have pictures of the stage where he had a flat and it was not like that. But the biggest difference is his wheel. He had a flat at the rear wheel during the stage. This one is the front wheel. This picture was taken during a training ride on the rest day in the 1990 Tour de France. Some journalist took this one and published it in the magazines. We verified it and we are right with our study. More details about this was already written here a few years ago. Just search in the pictures to the same pic . There are others about that stage. The comment says enough. A mystery was solved for us.'

It's almost like the search for the Lindbergh baby, or Amilia Earheart's Lockheed 10 Electra.
Or the number of licks it takes to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LZ0epRjfGLw)

The world may never know.







And it really doesn't matter.

The thing about all these passports is that it's about a whole picture, before and after. Horner or anyone else's passport isn't complete until a few months after the event.

There is only one thing left to do and that is tweet LeMond

But he might not remember :lol: :lol:

I think for him cycling is mainly a job.

Their combined weight doesn't equal one sumo.
