Felice Gimondi, nicknamed the phoenix" became a national idol practically in the same moment which he became professional. In his first season as a newby he filled out an open spot in his team for the Tour de France - and went on to win the race.
He also became the first rider after Anquetil who managed to win all three great stage races. And he was able to dominate a one-day-race as well.

This Photographic print shows him in preparation before the start of a race. The picture would have been taken in 1970 or maybe even 1971. If you find out which race was sponsored by Evian, you could probably know where this picture was taken.
Gimondi, holding his bike in his right hand hand, is checking his back pockets with his left. He seems halfway surprised to be photographed in this hunched position.
It is a great shot with loads of details, from the clothing to the bicycles: note how he is running the first generation Campagnolo brakes, combined with first generation Campagnolo Superleggeri pedals. Brake levers and seatpost have been drilled.
Obviously it is a cold morning in the mountains which is supposed to become a hot day. Gimondi still wears his sweater over his jersey but on his Chiorda he has mounted two bidons, in expectation of future thirsty kilometers.

The Art Print is a high quailty reprint of an original from the press service of one of Italy's most important journalistic photo-agencies, Milan's Olympia.

The Size of the photo print is A3 which is 29,7 cm x 42,0 cm.
