In the 1960s, when fall came, professional road racers turned to the velodromes to earn a bit extra in six day races. Contracts were not as comfortable as nowadays and even the great champions were happy for the opportunity to gain some prize money on wooden planks.
On this picture you can see two of the great riders of their time, Gianni Motta of the Molteni Team and Felice Gimondi of Salvarani. Offside the track there was time for a short chat and a handshake for the press.
The picture was taken at the 1968 sixday race in Milan and the outcome is almost predicted in it: Gianni Motta won together with Peter Post, Gimondi and Rudi Altig came second.

In the background of our two cyclists you can see the typical booths and stalls which form their own little village at the center of the velodrome. A heating lamp and a cot for massages are visible.
The small menthol candy in Gimondi's hand and the third person practically 'photobombing' the picture give the scene a lighthearted, improvised touch it otherwise would have lacked

The print is an original from the press service of one of Italy's most important journalistic photo-agencies, Milan's Olympia.
Size is 32x24 cm.


Used.   The print is original archive inventory. It has some scuffs or kinks from handling and storage. The quality of the picture is good.

Just bought a second vintage classic bike from Steel Vintage. A great bike at an excellent price and they couldn't have been more helpful. Their fantastic service was every bit as good as before.
Placed the on-line order late on Saturday evening and the bike was delivered to me here in the UK the following Thursday morning.

Geeky Eroica Cool. I bought the "old-school" Italian made bike shoes. They were delivered in good condition and in a quick timely fashion. They're geeky cool, just like I hoped and they're put together very well (stitched nicely, no glues where it shouldn't be) light and fit properly!

Steel Vintage Bikes are such an excellent company to deal with. They are passionate about vintage steel bikes. They have in my opinion very fair prices and very obliging to deal with. Packaging is great and no hassle even for delivery way down here in New Zealand.

The overall service provided by Steel Vintage Bikes is always first rate. Delivery and packaging is always timely and well done. I cannot fault Steel Vintage and have been a customer for a number of years.. Plan to get to Berlin hopefully in the near future, stop in for a some Kaffee und Kirchen and a bike geek mooch around the shop.
