It took me back to Paris, 2003, standing in the press area at the finish on the Champs-Élysées witnessing the battle for the Green Jersey between Baden Cooke and Robbie McEwen. The Frenchman, Nazon won the final stage followed by Baden and then Robbie. Baden’s win gave him the Green Jersey.

Lewy body dementia, a rare disease robbed us of such a unique talent - such a sad loss.
