Feel the air: training ride.

The ride.

Renault-Elf-Gitane was a formidable team virtually winning most races entered during their reign from 1978-1985. Here is a nice picture essay of the team in training.

The team swelled with stars' Bernard Hinault, Laurent Fignon, the Madiot brothers, Charly Mottet & Greg Lemond. The images are a reflection of a simpler time back in the eighties!

Laurent Fignon.
Two time Tour de France champ.

Marc Madiot.
