Gee I must be getting old. I still have a GB team jersey in my collection... Name these 3 riders, extra credit if you get the year right:
Is this one of them?PdxMark

Hint: 2 or 3 are still active pros, and 2 of 3 have won Paris-Roubaix.

Mario Cippollini, Claudio Ciapucci, Johan Museau
I probably spelled them all wrong, but my years of viewing WCP tapes have finally paid off.

Looking over the other replies, that probably is Ballerini in the middle. He looks much taller when he's on the bike.
Chiappucci is about a ft. shorter :)briko51

nope.lonefrontranger

Museeuw and Cipo for certain, but it's Ballerini, not Chiappuci. Remember, 2 of 3 won Paris-Roubaix, which El Diablo never did.
wow... I got 2 out of 3 ... yr 1992? nmPdxMark

You win... a pair of dirty Excel socks ;-) (it's laundry night)

I'm ashamed that no one got the extra credit, am I REALLY that old? The year was 1993.
