Roger De Vlaeminck
Tour de France, 1971

In this fantastic image, a well-dressed lady runs to hand the injured De Vlaeminck what looks like a bottle of wine.  De Vlaeminck was leading the points classification at the 1971 Tour when in Stage 7 he crashed and had to abandon the race.

De Vlaeminck is a four-time winner of Paris-Roubaix and one of only three riders to win all five “Monuments of Cycling” (i.e., Milan-San Remo, Tour of Flanders, Paris-Roubaix, Liege-Bastogne-Liege, and the Giro di Lombardia)

Lithograph printing was done by AMP Printing in Dublin, California on Daiei TopKote 111 pound acid-free archival quality stock using a Heidelberg press.

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.
