Poulidor by Chris Protopapas
Raymond Poulidor near the finish of the 20th stage of the 1976 Tour de France, the summit of the Puy-de-Dome. He finished 4th in this stage, holding off Raymond Delisle to maintain 3rd place in the overall standings, at 40, the oldest man to achieve this in the Tour’s history.
