I40 years ago, one of them made us dream on the roads of the Tour de France by winning the world title in road cycling. 20 years later, it was the second's turn to amaze us by adding with the first star on the national jersey. These two French sportsmen have thus thrilled generations. Then they entered the legend of French sport. Bixente Lizarazu and Bernard Hinault met for a weekend of discovery, across the Basque Country.

Two world champions

A dream for Bixente, passionate about surfing, sailing and scuba diving. Because the former attacking left-back of the France team is also a fan of cycling. What could he have dreamed of better than a weekend with Bernard Hinault? He is the French cyclist with the richest prize list in history. 10 great Tours including 5 Tours de France, 41 stage victories, 1 Paris-Roubaix, 2 Giro-Tour doublets?… And the two men were very well surrounded during their breakaway, since another world champion was present.
