    Cool pic from the 1953 tour courtesy of Time Magazine.

    Tour de France 1953: Rare Photos of an International Sports Spectacle | Time.com

    High atop the foggy Col du Tourmalet, one of the most difficult passes in the Pyrenees, thousands of Frenchmen gathered . . . to experience a single moment. It came when a group of cyclists zoomed into sight and zoomed right out again over the mountains.

    Wow !
    That Bartali picture is now my favorite picture of the Tour de France.
    Bartali was an interesting guy.
    It is worth reading about his history.

    Just like stage 10 today, lots of rollers. Hopefully, the two picnickers woke up in time to see the peloton pass by. Pic courtesy of the Podium Cafe.

    Swiss rider Ferdi Kübler won the Tour de France in 1950 and the following year became World Champion. He won eight stages of the Tour de France and won Liège–Bastogne–Liège as well as La Flèche Wallonne...twice. He's is smoking' this turn and talk about focus.

    Wonder how those air cooled motos held up under 2 people and not much breeze over the fins.

    It looks like today’s stage route was also around 80 years or so ago...sans pavement.

    Even though he didn’t even make the podium, fans in Paris carried Honoré Barthélémy on their shoulders after the 1920 Tour de France finished for his show of courage. During the eighth stage he crashed heavily, dislocating his wrist, breaking his shoulder and bursting an eye. Nonetheless he rode the next seven stages and 2,500km to Paris, finishing eighth...today is a heroic day as well.
