Lawrence Roche

Lawrence Roche (born 15 October 1967 in Dublin) is a former professional Irish road racing cyclist. He was a professional from 1989 to 1991 where he rode for the Carrera Jeans - Vagabond for two years and then for Tonton tapas team for 1991 in which he rode the Tour de France for the only time in his career where he finished in the 153rd place. During that Tour, he raced on the same team as his famous brother Stephen Roche. Stephen was disqualified on the second stage of the race after failing to make the time limit when he missed the start time of the team time trial. Several days later, Lawrence went on a long solo breakaway. In 2002 he was back to racing after a two year break and he won the Dunboyne 3 day race.
