Medical Education[edit]

In addition to Wisconsin-Madison, I think Eric Heiden attended U.C. San Diego in the early 1980s. I know he spent a lot of time on campus, but not sure if he was a student.

Heiden in Tour de France[edit]

Believe Heiden started the 1987 Tour. Acording to Dag-Otto Laurizen, Heiden was the first person to congratulate him on his stage win in 1987 as they were team-mates and Heiden had withdrawn earlier. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 81.191.137.250 (talk) 08:26, January 17, 2007
