Most memorable cycling moment
On the “CSC – Overcoming” movie, documenting team CSC on the 2004 Tour de France. The look Lance Armstrong gives Bjarne Riis as he passes the CSC team car and catches his minute man and main rival, Ivan Basso on the desiscive time trial up Alp D’huez. I bet poor Bjarne is still having nightmares.
