Shot(s) of the Sheriff

Tearing it up in 1977.


Made for les pavé!

Francesco Moser won over 290 races in his career. His favorite race was Paris-Roubaix, winning three of them in 1978, 1979, & 1980. In 1976 edition, he came very close behind the winner Marc Demeyer in second. Amazingly, Moser finished on the Paris-Roubaix podium... seven times!


1986 Paris-Roubaix would be his last battle
over the pavé. Moser finished an heroic 8th!

Hi Richard. I just noticed, but I think the rider on your wallpaper looks an awfully lot like you!

Jim,

I'm flatter but I'm not Gianni Bugno!
