Quebec - Montreal in 1991, race distance 275km.
After racing solo for 190km John was caught by Gervais Rioux and some of the Evian Team , he went on the attack again and got away to win by 30seconds
John never drank much and only had 2 bidons for most of the race but in the last 25km he drank nearly 4 liters of coke
After the race John spoke to the media about his win
" I almost cried, having won such a classic race.Our manager had told me that I had to win, because they had entered a Team 12 times and not won it yet "
This is John just after the race.
Thanks to John for the photo and gayle for the little story .
I love the solo breakaway !!

But the multitudes who love the explosion of competition hope that they can remain friends off the bike.On occasion it even makes sense to pretend to be,though it's much better still if you manage for real.'
