Brief Description
Black and white photograph of cyclists taken during the Tour De France in 1928. The image features three riders on bicycles riding up a gravel road. Three men watch on from two cars parked at their left. Mountains with patches of snow in the background. Photographers stamp and French handwriting in pencil on reverse. Pencil writing reads '29656/13 Etape/Laduc-Bidot-Barifi'. The picture is taken during the 13th Stage of the 1928 Tour De France, which took riders through the French Alps from Nice to Grenoble. The lead rider is most likely French cyclist André Leducq, who finished fourth in this stage and claimed second place overall on the 1928 Tour. Leducq later won the 1930 and 1932 editions of the Tour De France. The second cyclist on the road is either Marcel or Jean Bidot, and the third rider is probably Swiss cyclist Guy Bariffi.
