Au Revoir, Laurent Fignon!

Sad day today for bicycling fans.

Laurent Fignonhas passed away today at age 50, two time Tour de France Champion.

Wearing his eyeglasses, Laurent always stood out from the crowd.  I learned his trick of wearing a cycling cap to keep the rain from finding its way behind the lenses.

 

Yesterday, Lance Armstrong Twittered “Allez, Laurent!” in encouragement, but Laurent’s battle with cancer is at an end.  Rest in peace, mon ami.  He will be missed.

Bob  :cry:

Definitely too young to die at 50, but Cancer doesn’t discriminate.

Even with all the tests and treatments for cancer, the disease still takes too many lives.  Sad.
