The Friday Cyclotouriste

a geo-photoblog chronicling my "excursions velo"

Bicycling Culture……Le Tour de France

without comments

In honor of Day 1 — a few videos:

The first is a short history of the race highlighting many of its famous victors: Anquetil, Coppi, Hinault, Merckx, Armstrong, and my favorite Lemond.

The second video gives an idea of what this race looked like in the early days (the death defying descent at the 11 second mark is remarkable).
