Secret Sprint


Stage 15, 1936 Tour de France. There was a surprise along the course, a unannounced "Secret Sprint" 13 kms from Ax, marked only by a thin white line (and car and race officials standing in the middle of nowhere). By luck or by clever surveillance, Paul Maye wins the sprint ahead of Eloi Meulenberg. Both riders would win two stages during that year's Tour.
