HINAULT '80  - Was this the greatest Classics victory of all time? Within 70 kilometres of the 1980 Liège-Bastogne-Liège monument over half the field had abandoned. Bernard Hinault himself was going to quit, before his famed pride prevented him from doing so. Attacking over the Haute-Levee (‘to keep warm’, he said after the race), Hinault rode the final 80km of the race alone, riding into Liège an astonishing nine minutes clear of the chasing pack. This was the day Bernard Hinault truly became le Patron.

It’s not enough to win. Winning can be boring, routine. But to win with style, with daring, with panache - that is what elevates a rider to the greats. Three of the greatest rides of all time, where riders took the peloton, the race, the elements and the landscape itself and bent it to their will. Each of these wonderful prints, by The Handmade Cyclist, features a subtle hatching detail and a killer quote from the riders that takes you to the heart of the pain and elation they felt as they rode into the history books.

Panache: Merckx '69, Hinault '80 and Hampsten '88
