Raymond Poulidor, 1965 Tour de France
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 legendary victories: 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!
