Here come the Colombians

Stage 13 Rodez – Revel
The Renault-Elf team of Cyrille Guimard dominated the 1984 Tour to such an extent that its riders were taking it in turns to win stages, including Pierre-Henri Mentheour in Rodez.

But four days later, it was Luis Herrera’s turn to capture the headlines on Alpe d’Huez as he became the first Colombian to win a Tour stage. After that, Laurent Fignon took charge all the way to Paris, finishing with more than 10 minutes in hand over Bernard Hinault.

    Oh! You mean Colombians! My interest was piqued by the possibility of learning something about riders from British Columbia, or the District of Columbia…
