First, fans at the roadside. Watching pro cycling has always been a waiting game.
Bugno, Indurain and Luc Leblanc. Bugno won the stage, Indurain was on the way to the first of his five wins, beginning an era of domination that felt even more invincible than Armstrong managed.

Also high on the stage result that day were Claudio Chiapucci and Greg Lemond but no photos of them, sadly.

If my memory serves me correct Fignon changed to the canti bike mid stage as it was believed to be lighter...
I think Motorola were the only team using ear pieces at that stage...naturally as they were the ones who introduced it to the peleton...

Would you consider taking the same camera to another GT stage? Although the rate of good shots per roll isn't as efficient as digital (where you can take thousands of shots without issue), there's something more visceral with the film shots.
Looking closely at the photo with Gianni Bugno I'm sure that is just a sunglasses cord. Race radios were still in the future.
Here are some more snaps. This was a time when French riders still felt they had a chance at the overall (however mistaken they were and for whatever reason) and this is Charly Mottet.
