Steve Bauer: 1984 Los Angeles Olympics

Bauer Power.

Steve Bauer speaking at the news conference after winning the silver medal in 1984 Los Angeles Olympic road race. All Canadian cycling fans cheered and jumped (I did) for joy after seeing him medal. Afterwards, he turned professional and riding in his second professional race won the bronze at the Barcelona world championship road race. With the doors wide open, he was signed by La Vie Claire, and began his professional career riding with Bernard Hinault and Greg LeMond.
