Steven Maasland writes:- As for the additional costs of removing the trade teams, here too you exaggerate heavily as the national cycling federations paid for most costs not Desgranges. Is that a presumption or a fact? did the Yugoslav, Romanian and Austrian federations really pay for their national teams in the 1936 Tour? Who paid for four or five french regional teams in later Tours, surely not the French federation. Vin denson will be attending the Kenton Road Club dinner tomorrow night so I can ask him who paid for the Brit team in the 1967 Tour. regards, Ray Green, Brighton, England
