Bernard Hinault and Greg LeMond race together to the summit of L'Alpe d'Huez in the 1986 Tour de France.

A beatiful and historic image - Graham Watson's favorite of all-time! Published on the 20th anniversary of the the great 1986 Tour de France, this poster features the two greatest cyclists of the 1980s - Frenchman Bernard Hinault and American Greg LeMond - in their legendary battle at Alpe d'Huez. While Hinault had promised his La Vie Claire teammate LeMond that he would help him win the Tour, his sincerity was questioned after repeated attacks throughout the race. The rivalry came to a head at the final ascent to Alpe d'Huez, when Hinault made an insane attack that should have buried both himself and LeMond. However, Greg stayed alongside, finished just beside his teammate in the stage, and then went on to victory in the overall classification to become the first American to win the Tour de France. From the lens of world-famous cycling photographer Graham Watson, this spectacular print is a true work of photographic art, as well as a celebration of the world of big-time cycling. Reproduced with impeccable color, clarity and focus, and printed on heavy gallery stock, this is an ultra-high quality print that is perfect for framing and display on the wall of home or office - a must for the wall of any true Tour de France fanatic!
