As the 2017 Tour de France nears its end and we look back on the struggles and stories that the tour always creates, we also remembered some of the great battles and stories of the long history of the tour.  Not least among them the battle between the first five time winner, Jacques Anquetil, 'Maitre Jacques'.

So it was timely that we stumbled across this article about the duel on the Puy de Dome between two giants of the road.  Enjoy!
