Raymond Poulidor enjoys a laugh before the start of Stage 10 of the 1969 Tour de France.
Stage 10 was a 221 km beast of a mountain stage from Chamonix to Briancon that went over three legendary climbs: the Col de Madeleine, the Col du Telegraphe, and the Col du Galibier. Poulidor finished 6th, 2′ 05″ behind winner Herman Van Springel.
While his nickname “the eternal second” fit the Tour de France, 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!
