Wee Greg’s Tour de France

Here is a photo of myself and Greg Eden enjoying the 2007 prologue of the Tour de France in Hyde Park, London. Greg and I worked together and I have good memories of us following the 2005 Tour as Lance, the wounded and restored king, won his historic seventh Tour.

Myself and Greg at the 2007 TDF prologue, cheers!

Greg commented that he used to have a Peugeot cycle cap in the Seventies, though he didn’t know what had happened to it. Then this fine picture surfaced:

In his own words:

“…that’s me in Magescq, Les Landes, France, 1978 – having cycled there from Paris on a knackered old racing bike with no gears (I was a tough kid)- also bearing the scars of a recent fall, damaging knee, elbow, and crucially, face when the steering column went wonky…”
