Paul Sherwen:
"Paul knows all about what is required to ride the Tour. In 1985’s race, his fourth tour, he crashed on the 10th stage between Epinal and Pontarlier, injuring his back. He chased after the field for a very painful 200 kilometres. He finished 23 minutes outside the cut-off time limit but the organisers were so impressed with the courage he had shown they waived the time limit and let him continue the race next day. He went on to finish in Paris.”
