BIANCHI Crono Reparto Corse – Dimitri KONYSHEV Team Mercatone Uno 1998 – SOLD
Dimitri Konyshev (born 18 February 1966 in Gorky) is a Russian former professional cyclist. During the 1989 World Championship he 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. While the Soviet’s would not allow their riders to join the professional teams until a short while before the end of the Cold War.
Konyshev won nine Grand Tour stages and become one of the few riders to win a stage in all three Grand Tours. He won 4 stages 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.
