Dear Dan,

It went by the title "Belleville Rendezvous" in the UK. A work of gently unsettling genius.

Yours, James

Danneaux:
Boy!

That was 7:36 of my life well-spent!  :D  Just look at that technique...dropping the inside knee to lower the center-of-gravity, and clipping those apexes with razor precision.  Darned motorcycles; geddouddadaway!  Team cars, too! Scoot! Comin' through at warp speed...

Wow.

Humbles a person just to see that, doesn't it? It is a real pleasure seeing an accomplished person performing at the absolute top of their game.

Best,

Dan.

jags:

one of my all time favourates is when steven roach chased down delgardo  in the 87 tour he hit over 70mph on that decent  ah if only i knew how to dig up tv footage of that 87 tour magic.

James, thanks so much for the update on the localized title. This happens surprisingly often, and I may have missed some more. I've edited the original post with a second entry so people will be able to catch it either way. Sharp eyes and most welcome; thanks!

Best,

Dan.

Oh! I remember that, jags! Epic. Man, couldn't Roche ride? I don't think I found footage of the downhill, but I did find Roche/Delgado's duel to the uphill finish here (1987, at La Plagne):

There are links to the major stage events for the 1987 Tour here: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLE8A1A8EDD8B17AAB&feature=plcp

It is possible the scene you recall is among these. It would be great to see it again. As I said, Epic!

Best,

Dan.
