Louison Bobet at Mont Ventoux - Tour de France 1955 © L'Équipe 18 juillet 1955.
Between Marseille and Avignon, Mont Ventoux stands on the road to the Tour. "With his ardent accomplice, the sun of Provence," writes Pierre Chany in ''L'Équipe'', "he imposes the implacable law of the strongest." Louison Bobet wins the stage, wetting his world champion's jersey as never before, while many of his rivals fail. He will drink half a bottle of champagne at the finish, a prelude to a third victory in Paris. An unprecedented triple win for a Frenchman.
Single draw later. Inkjet printing on baryta paper. Edition 1/1.
