$19.95

The 1989 Road World Championships were held in Chambéry France. Greg Lemond was the winner of the Men’s Road Race with Dimitri Konyshev in second and Sean Kelly third.

During the 1989 World Championship, Konydshev can be seen in a rather famous photo of cycling history showing the agony of defeat in 2nd place behind Greg Lemond’s display of the intensity of victory. In 1990 Konyshev would become the first-ever rider from the Soviet Union to win a stage in the Tour de France.

All total in his professional career Konyshev would win nine Grand Tour stages becoming one of the few riders to win a stage in all three Grand Tours. He won 4 apiece in the Tour de France and the Giro d’Italia, and he also won a single stage in the Vuelta a Espana. He followed his silver medal at the 1989 World Championship with a Bronze medal in 1992 at Benidorm and later in his career during the 2000 Giro d’Italia he won the Points Classification, as well as the overall Combativity Award.

The set includes two postal covers, one signed by Konyshev and one not.
