Archival Tour de France

Posted on: June 30th, 2013 by Lesli Larson

I dream of a sports channel that broadcasts sporting events from the past.  While I’m aloof to the running of the 100th edition of the Tour de France, I’d love to watch 50 year old coverage of the race. While I cannot provide you with live footage of the 1963 tour, here is some print ephemera and vintage figurines (via the Spoke Sniffer archives) for restaging your own race. If you prefer moving images, I recommend you watch the greatest cycling film ever made: Louis Mallee’s short documentary, Vive Le Tour (1962)

    The pictures from Corsica have been spectacular.
