Pic of the Day 26th September, 2005
1949 Paris-Limoges winner Roger Pontet
Large image of Parisian rider Roger Pontet (Olimpia) on his way to winning the 1949 Paris-Limoges. The white loop on his right hip might be the strap from a musette stuffed beneath his jersey. The dark crumpled item in front of the seat cluster is his frame number. Note the three-fingers of seatpost showing, frame pump behind the seattube, and long steel stem. From "But et Club" No.183, 13 June 1949.
