French Charly Mottet from Systeme U speeds 16 July 1987 during the 16th stage of the 74th Tour de France, between Blagnac and Millau. The yellow jersey changed hands several times with Charly Mottet, Roche, Jean Fran�ois Bernard and Delgado all wearing it before Roche used the final 35km time trial to overturn a half-minute gap and win the Tour by what was at the time the narrowest margin ever of just 40 seconds. Thus Roche became only the fifth cyclist in history to win the Tour de France and the Giro in the same year. He was also the first and only Irishman ever to win the Tour de France.
