1983 was a historic year in the Professional World Championships. Bringing you another spectacular photo gallery, Werner Möller captured the first American to win the historic race: young Greg LeMond. Held in Altenrhein, Switzerland, Werner remembers the haunting silence of the tifosi (Italian fans) as Greg LeMond from the USA crossed the line alone. The Italian team, Squadra Azzurra had done everything right throughout the race, and the Italian fans were shocked into silence. LeMond also won the Tour de France three times in his career.
