Badger's first Giro





Bernard Hinault couldn't win the 1980 Giro (his first of three) without a little help from his teammate, the indispensable Jean-Rene Bernaudeau. The Badger may've lost his maglia rosa after stage 6 to Elba but no matter. As stage 20 included the feared Stelvio, Bernaudeau was sent over and won the stage just ahead of an appreciative Badger. With the maglia rosa back on Hinault's shoulders it was safe and under controlled to the finish in Milano!
