c.1965 – Patrick Sercu – La Fleche Auxerroise Race Poster


La Fleche Auxerroise was a charming circuit race held each year that featured current and former stars. The headliner, Patrick Sercu, was just beginning his ascent to ultimately being the winningest 6-day rider of all time. At the time of this race, he was celebrated as the newly crowned Olympic Champion. Other headliners included cyclo-cross world champion Renato Longo, former road world champion Andre Darrigade, and the irascible two-time Tour de France green jersey winner Jean Graczyk.

This poster is an original first printing, not a reproduction.

This poster has been archivally and professionally linen backed. Virtually all original vintage posters of this era were viewed as temporary advertising and were printed on very thin paper. While expensive, linen backing is a conservation method used to mount, stabilize, preserve and protect vintage posters so they can be displayed or framed without compromising value.
