“Tour de France – Victorie de Bernard Hinault” Press Photo. Paris/New York: Keystone Press Agency, 19 July, 1981. Press photo, 21.5cm by 16.5cm. Near fine with agency stamps, notes and caption on verso: “Arrivee du Tour de France sur les Champs-Élysées: Victoire de Bernard Hinault..." A wonderful podium shot of (left-to-right) Freddy Maertens (points champion), Robert Alban (third place), Bernard Hinault (overall winner), Lucien Van Impe (second place and King of the Mountains), and Peter Winnen (“young rider” classification winner). The caption identifies “Bernard Zoetemelk” in the photo, but it is actually Joop Zoetemelk – and he isn’t in the photo anyway. HInault was a true champion, having won the Tour de France five times, the Giro d’Italia three times, the Vuelta a España twice, the World Road Race Championships, and fourteen wins in the one-day classics.
