Description

Stephen Roche became a Triple Champion in 1987 - by winning the Giro d'Italia, the Tour de France and World Championships in one year - an historic feat that has only ever been achieved once by the incomparable Eddy Merckx in 1974.

From humble beginnings in Dublin as an apprentice fitter to a cycling triple champion, Stephen tells us about his roller-coaster journey that took him to the summit of world cycling. On disc one we learn of an early talent - junior titles, success in the 1980 Paris-Roubaix amateur race and an incredible first year as a professional in 1981 by winning Paris-Nice. Stephen tells us about the highs and lows. Through an in-depth interview, rare and historic archive film, and fabulous race footage of all his major victories, this revealing and intimate programme tells us of his determination to reach the very top.

This is a magical and unforgettable story.On disc two a complete review of the 1987 Tour de France - a severe 25 stage Tour that saw Roche win an incredible battle with Pedro Delgado and an emotional final victory. Roche gave it everything, dramatically collapsing at La Plagne with exhaustion, then taking the Yellow Jersey on the time-trial to Dijon, and finally riding into a Paris swamped in tricolour flags. A day when Irish eyes were smiling!
