Hinault Is Worth His Weight in Beans

After Bernard Hinault was weighed so he could be given his weight in coffee by cycling trade sponsor Cafe de Colombia, it was on to stage 22, a 194km ceremonial march from Clermont- Ferrand to Nevers.

A breakaway containing Hampsten, Bauer, and Kiefel was chased down by the Carrera team.

Bomtempi’s sprint victory over Hoste and Vanderaerden looked almost a formality.

LeMond remains in yellow and his victory in Paris tomorrow seems certain.

The stage results:
1. Bontempi 5:12:55 (37.18 kph)
2. Hoste s.t.
3. Vanderaerden s.t.
