When Kelly Was Hero in San Remo

After the announcement last week of a new international cycling tour for Ireland to take place in August, here's a further little treat for Irish cycling fans.

Sean Kelly wins the 1992 Milan-San Remo classic, after a hair-raising chase-down of leader Moreno Argentin. Worth watching alone for the moment, about 6 minute in, when Argentin turns round to Kelly and seems to plead for help in keeping the pace from the chasing group. Kelly, implacably, holds his nerve to pounce just short of the finish line.

Remember when Sean Kelly was one of the few things to be proud of being Irish about? It was U2, Johnny Logan and Sean Kelly, and that was it.
