Raymond Poulidor
Tour de France, 1965

Raymond “Poupou” Poulidor attacks during the 1965 Tour de France where he ultimately finished 2nd to Italy’s Felice Gimondi. 

While his nickname “the eternal second” fit the 1965 Tour, he had a career stacked with victories that are legendary: 1961 Milan–San Remo, 1963 La Flèche Wallonne, 1963 Grand Prix des Nations, 1964 Vuelta a España, Critérium International (1964, 1966, 1968, 1971–72), Critérium du Dauphiné Libéré (1966, 1969), Paris–Nice (1972–73), and 7 stage wins at the Tour de France. What a rider!

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.
