Laurent Fignon: Final Applause Please...

The Tour Trio, July 2010.



This morning, I was watching Eurosport's coverage of the Vuelta when I heard that commentator Sean Kelly was not working. He was attending Laurent Fignon's funeral in Paris. Today, the French hero was laid to rest in a Paris crematorium. Thinking of it, I'm still in shock and truly sadden that he's gone.

Rest in peace, Professor!

Very, very sad. He was one of my 'heroes' during the 80's - Au revoir Le Professeur
