Just over 30 years ago, back in the late 80s, the 7-Eleven team from the US and Britain's ANC-Halfords squad were still a bit of a novelty. We take a retro look at the Amstel Gold Race Dutch Classic in 1987 through the lens of Cor Vos.
Twenty years before the multi-million pound Sky Team rode the WorldTour, there was another 'ground breaking' British team that took on the Continentals in their own back-yard. The ANC team had its eventual problems, but it showed what was possible. One high point was Malcolm Elliott's 3rd place in the 1987 Amstel Gold Race.
