Just saw this new component on the tour website that will be of interest:

The resources of INA (French Audiovisual Institute) on the official website Thanks to this new collaboration with the French Audiovisual Institute, letour.fr proposes its visitors to travel across time and rediscover the history of the Tour de France. The data base comprises archives dating back to the 1947s and permits to make a search for pictures of Bobet, Coppi and even Merckx. Those who were stirred when watching the feat of Bernard Hinault or the eight-second victory of Greg LeMong over Laurent Fignon will have the possibility to relive these major events of cycling history. A customised version of the INA search engine has been installed on letour.fr. http://www.ina.fr/tour-de-france
