The Prologue

Prologue Rotterdam – Rotterdam
Chris Boardman in ’94 became the first British rider since Tom Simpson in 1962 to wear the yellow jersey, recording a record-breaking average speed of 55.152km/h over the 7.2km course in Lille. The flailing style of previous starter Luc Leblanc as Boardman hammers past puts the master prologue rider’s performance into telling perspective.
