LA Olympics Finish 1984

I was looking at Alexi’s blog and saw this video of the Olympic Road Race in 1984. Pretty interesting. Check Alexi out climbing when Bauer is bridging to him. Pretty ugly. I remember coming home to Kansas and painting my house when the Olympic road race was showing Live. I could hardly watch it. I couldn’t believe Alexi outsprinted Steve Bauer. He has an interesting piece on his blog about his recollection of the race. I have no idea if what he writes now could have been happening in his brain then. I know Alexi had broad thoughts, but trying to figure that race scenario out would have been impossible. It’s always easier to reconstruct it later on I guess.
