Gintautas Umaras is one of the great pursuiters in history. He first made the Soviet national team in 1981 and would have been a favorite at the 1984 Olympics, had the USSR not boycotted. In addition to his Olympic victories in 1988, he was USSR champion from 1984-87 and world individual pursuit champion in 1987. After the 1988 Olympics, Umaras joined several other prominent Soviet riders when he was allowed to turn professional, and had a brief professional career from 1989-91.
