The store's Newsletter: September 2020

Start at the head of the peloton well before the start of the Tour de France!

Here, just for you, is the special collection of Pédale! photo prints, our cycling magazine which comes out only once a year, with:

10 legendary photos from the history of cycling for the 10th anniversary of Pédale!
10 photos in twenty-one copies!
21 copies like the 21 stages of the Tour de France!



Before showing them to you, we remind you one last time to think about the special “family” promo - for you, our very first customers - of -15% reduction on all photos.

It is still valid, there are only 6 days left, until August 31, 2020 in fact (you count). We remind you of the code: SOSOLAFAMILLE (to be entered at the time of payment).

And to start this selection in style, head to Occitanie, more precisely to Gaillac, in 2003. No, there is no sea, but there are indeed spectators sunbathing along the road. The reason for Armstrong 's defeat that day against Ullrich? Right away the shortcuts...

For the next shot, we stay in the South-West, between Mourenx and Pau, with this American fan wearing a US football helmet in the shape of an eagle and a nice stride to run alongside the runners. And this, despite the remonstrances of Thierry Adam.

Sublime shot of David Latasa , heading towards Pau, with a magnificent view of the Pyrenees. An impression that twenty years ago, riding on water seemed normal. Amazing.

Bernard Hinault , yellow jersey, during the first climb of the day, the Col de Pas-de-Morgins, in this 11th stage of the 1985 Tour de France . On arrival in Morzive-Avoriaz that day, one more victory to the Badger's already well-stocked track record.

Marc Soler in the middle of a crowd, in the middle of the Tourmalet climb and with a breathtaking view of the Gave de Pau valley, during the last edition of the Tour de France. Not to be repeated this year ( not very Covid-Friendly).

Toshiba jersey on the back, pair of Oakley glasses on the nose, Giro helmet on the head, it's Jalabert on the cobbles of Paris-Roubaix during the 88th edition. No tan expected during this day.

The rain doesn't stop him, nor does the slippery ground, nor even De Vlaeminck . The Belgian Eddy Merckx carried out a solo raid during the 1970 Paris-Roubaix, a new record, with 5 minutes and 21 seconds ahead of his contender, the largest gap of the event.

Failing to have made it past the quarter-finals of the 1998 World Cup, Italy can boast of having in its ranks the winner of the Tour de France that year. During this second Pyrenean stage and its 4 passes to climb , the first to arrive at the top of the Beille plateau, encouraged by the crowd, was Marco Pantani. He Pirata.

A green July 19, 2009, between France and Switzerland , mountains and bucolic landscapes on the occasion of the 15th stage of this Grande Boucle which saw Alberto Javier Contador Velasco , 'El pistolero', win (and seize the yellow jersey) in Verbier.

The 19th stage of the Tour de France 2013 offers a high mountain route with five passes on the program , including the Glandon (1924 m) as an aperitif and the Madeleine (2000 m) as a starter. At the finish that day, it was the Portuguese Rui Costa who won and Froome who remained in yellow.
