So is this the first example of the dreadful Baseball cap worn on a podium in cycling history. I’m not sure if anyone knows an earlier example please let me know. However we all have everyones favorite drunken uncle at a wedding Greg Lemond to thank for this god awful example during the fateful 1989 tour. Not only did he beat one of my all time favorite riders he dared to wear a flo pink COORS LIGHT baseball cap when holding high the famous yellow jersey. Its no wonder Fignon looks so beaten. Its not losing the race he is ashamed of its the fact that he has been beaten by someone working in MacDonalds that has pissed him off. To rectify this horrid eyesore I’ve also posted some classic examples new and old of the beautiful cycling casquette.
