Biography

Cyclist Reinhard Alber was on the West German pursuit team at the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics, narrowly winning the bronze medal ahead of Italy by 1.30 seconds. Alber started his sports career in his youth as a swimmer and skater, but turned to cycling when he was 14 years of age.

In 1984 Alber won his first national title, partnering non-Olympian Gerhard Strittmatter in the Madison. In 1987 and 1989 Alber added three more titles in the team pursuit and individual pursuit. He trained as a technical draughtsman and later became a graduated geo-biologist.
