I've now found a photo of Frans Maassen of Wordperfect riding with Johan Museeuw in the 1993 Tour of Flanders. Museeuw won and Maassen was second. Maassens bike is a Colnago with a superbe pro groupset and downtube levers. Museeuw has ergopower. Suntour had no chance of competing without brake lever gear changing. Interesting to read about Johan Van de Velde on the Gavia. For some years I had his photo on my bedroom wall. If it was cold and I didn't fancy going training one look at Van de Velde at 8000ft in a blizzard with no gloves or armwarmers and I'd get my kit on and brave the elements. Andy Hampsten took over the race lead that day and he was dressed for climbing the north face of the Eiger in winter. Can't say that I noticed Van de Velde's seat pin through the snow!
