Pic of the Day 19th May 2007 Seventy-Three Years Ago

Fit, trim and muscular, French Champion Roger Lapébie (La Français) rehydrates after winning the 1st stage of the 1934 Paris - St-Etienne in Nevers, ahead of Charles Pélissier and Antonin Magne. Lapébie went on to win the two-stage event (which ran intermittently from 1921 through 1952) as he had done in 1933 and would do again in 1935, and in 1937 would win the Tour de France. Note that the cotton strip on the spare tubular taken from his shoulders looks spotlessly clean. From "Le Miroir des Sports' No.765, 22 May 1934.
