Hennie Kuiper and the ’85 Milan San Remo

Wonderful footage of Hennie Kuiper riding off the front to win the 1985 Milan San Remo, leaving Vilet and Ricco (not the snake) in his wake after jumping on the Poggio. What gear was he pushing!?! I can feel the acid gather in my legs just watching it. I am betting a 53 X 12….

  1. The name’s Hennie. Short for Hendrikus. The Dutch like those old Latin/Greek-sounding names on the birth certificates, but usually pick nicknames for daily use.
