The year was 1984 and Robert Millar was on his way to winning an epic 226km, seven-hour slog over Pyrenean passes from Pau to Guzet-Neige.

He had tentatively announced his presence with a stage win a year earlier, but in 1984 the 25-year-old exceeded all expectations with his stage win, fourth overall and the coveted polka dot jersey of King of the Mountains, a performance that remains the best ever by a British rider.
