Dutch photographer Cor Vos has filled the pages of Velo and VeloNews Magazine with images from around the world for more than three decades. From the Tour de France to the world’s biggest one-day classics, Vos’ eye for drama has made him one of the world’s preeminent cycling photographers. In this regular gallery, we look at a selection of Vos’ Velo catalogue, dating back to his shot of Francesco Moser at the 1978 Paris-Roubaix.
In the first installment of Vos’ historical gallery at VeloNews.com, we bring you the 1986 Milan-San Remo. Coming off his fifth Paris-Nice win in a row, Sean Kelly stormed away after Greg LeMond and Mario Beccia on the Poggio after catching an early breakaway that included Marc Madiot and Steve Bauer. The Irishman opened the three-man sprint in San Remo and moved up the left barriers with a large enough burst to enjoy his first of two wins in “La Primavera.”
