With all of these ingredients the cycling of the 1990’s was some of the best cycling ever watched. Long breakaways, sprinting trains, team tactics and new young talent were all broadcasted on our TV’s. Sprinters like Mario Cipolinni was creating a designated sprint train on his way to winning very race on the calendar. Marco Pantani was to become to next big Italian hero by winning the Giro and the TDF and Germany had created the next hope in the form of Jan Ullrich.
