1988 Seoul Olympic Games

Jussi over at Fixed Gear Blog posted a link to NZTony’s Flickr set of the 1988 Seoul Olympic Games track events.

There are some prime cuts in this one. Amazing time-trial bikes in the age when the UCI hadn’t banned pursuit bikes, including these Corsa-Record equipped carbon fiber East German pursuits.

Tony does a great job narrating each image.

Lutz Hesslich (East Germany) starting his sprint to catch Nikolai Kovche (Russia) in the Mens Sprint Final at the 1988 Olympic Games in Seoul South Korea.

Hisslich won 2 – 0.

Great set. Thanks for sharing Jussi and Tony, amazing photos!
