Some incredible footage take from the 1962 Tour De France. How they ate food (ice creams, anyone?), replacing liquids (stop in at the local, run in grab as many bottles of juice you can fit in the back of your shirt. Don’t pay. Jump on your bike again). Not a helmet in sight.
Its not about the winners and its not about the advertising or the even the race, its about all those that participated. If we think this is a tough race now, imagine what it was like then before race radio and carbon fibre and cleats, or even having your team ride you back into the race.
