August 12, 1987: San Sebastian - San Sebastian, 244 km.

Marino Lejaretta

Marino Lejarreta has won San Sebastain a record three times.

The race: Winner Marino Lejaretta believes he was able to win his record third San Sebastain in 1987 because he still had the terrific form he had gained riding the Tour de France to tenth place in July.

As was his usual tactic, he attacked on the Jaizkibel climb and then put his head down and drove hard to the finish. He noted that a course change had increased the distance from the Jaizkibel's summit to the race's finish, making such a strategy more dangerous.

But, he pulled it off. He was barely able to sit up and enjoy his solo victory with Angel Arroyo and Federico Echave finishing just two seconds later.
