Pic of the Day 25th July, 2005

Guy Lapébie at Eighteen

It's always fun to scan through these old magazines and find a picture showing someone before they became really famous. This picture shows 1937 Tour de France winner Roger Lapébie's younger brother Guy in 1934, at age eighteen, while still just a promising amateur. Two years later he would finish 2nd in the road race at the Berlin Olympics, then enjoy a long and productive career in the professional ranks from 1937 until 1952.
>From "Match l'Intran" No.446, 26 February 1935.
