Bloomsbury Sport’s Tour de France Photo of the Day

Stage 11

Rivals united
Jacques Anquetil and Raymond Poulidor in the Parc des Princes at the end of the 1964 race. It was Anquetil’s fifth victory, a record. Poulidor, the eternal second, was … second. In fact, it was his first time as runner-up; he would finish second twice more, and third on five occasions.
