My old teammate Jean-Francois Bernard on Toshiba-Look


A crucial day for the Yellow Jersey. Would he wear it again?

What a terrific photo. Thanks for sharing, Shelley. And no, "Jeff" would not wear the yellow jersey again in his career.

Bonjour Julien,
I have so many beautiful stories about your father. I was his soigneur on La-Vie-Claire and then Toshiba. Paul Koechli, our directeur sportif,brought me to France from the American Team 7-ELEVEN! It was a big spectacolo for the other soigneur and mecanos, but not for JF!...he liked the change! I changed the ravitto from Joel Marteil's old way! He was Hinault's soigneur and did not like me! Jule, I have more photos for you! love, to you and Jeff! Shell xxoo

Hello Shelley,

remember you so good from 1986 TdF, i was almost 17 and youre appearance in cycling was refreshing. It was en maybe is a bit of a men's world!
Me and my brother where back then and still are great JF Bernard fans. Like the photo so much.
Did you have actually contact with Julien, his son?
Iam also curious about JF story's and pictures.
Thx anyway for this blog!
