$7.95

1963 Tour de France 
Race Winner, Jacques Anquetil

Tintin “The Magazine for Youth from 7 to 77” was published weekly from 1946 to 1993. It was a significant publication on the Franco-Belgian comic scene. It ran memorable series like Blake and Mortimer, Alix, The Adventures of Tintin, and general interest stories, interviews, and current news.

This magazine celebrates the 1963 Tour. And what a year it was! The organizers had grown a bit tired of Jacques Anquetil’s supremacy at their race. So when designing the course, they purposely cut the total distance of the time trials to a mere 79 kilometers – compared with 130 kilometers the previous year.  It was an attempt to make the 50th edition of the Tour more suited to climbers. Their plan failed as Anquetil went on to win his 4th Tour de France.
