Pic of the Day 26th May Anguish

Winner of stage 19 from Marseille to Gap, Belgium's young Armand Baeyens misjudged a turn and fell on stage 21 from Briancon to Aix les Bains, suffering multiple injuries. He bravely remounted and finished within the time limit. From "But et Club - Le Miroir des Sport" No.307, 27 Juillet 1951

Every time I look at this photograph, I find his expression heart-wrenching. You can see so much in that face, the way he's holding his arms, the hand on his shoulder.
