Felice Gimondi
Tour de France, 1965

Italy’s Felice Gimondi looks focused and in control as he climbs wearing the maillot jaune at the 1965 Tour de France. In this his first year as a professional Gimondi, a substitute replacement on the Salvarani team, won the overall title. 

Gimondi became the second cyclist, after Jacques Anquetil,  to win all three Grand Tours.  He won the Tour de France in 1965, the Giro d’Italia in 1964, 1969 and 1976 and the Vuelta a España in 1968.

Description

Despite our efforts to find the name of the photographer of this image, it currently remains a mystery. As was common practice at the time, original photographs often had no reference as to the name of the photographer. Rather, there were crop marks and other notations written on the back of the original photograph that was used in the print publication process. As always, we welcome any knowledge regarding the awesome photographers that so deftly captured and continue to capture the vibrant landscape of cycling.
