How to Wear a Cycling Cap: Louison Bobet

While working on your bike, even in the middle of the Tour de France.


The year is 1953, stage 7 during the Tour de France. Bobet is not only receiving some assistance from teammate, Bernard Gauthier, but judging by the intent expressions on the faces of the nearby spectators, I image there is quite a bit of unsolicited advice being given as well. Bobet failed to win on that day, but did capture two stages later in the race, and finished up in grand style by wearing Yellow for the final five stages and winning his first (of three) Tours de France.
