On October 3rd, I was priviledged to attend a reunion of Basque former bicycle champions held in Salvatierra, Spain. I was invited by Francisco (Paco) Galdos. In 1975 Paco finished second in the Giro, having lost by only 41 seconds, and, in the same year won the Tour de Romandie. He has a very long list of other important victories and finished 11 Tours of France. The images show him in 1976 on a KAS Team bike (Masi), his KAS Team World Champion Race jersey, and as he is today. A finer person doesn't exist in this world. George George Hollenberg MD CT, USA
