A Miscellany of Le Tour de France - Day 37

1950 On the Stage from Toulon and Menton, the race swept past the Gulf of St Tropez. Sweltering in the heat, the sight of the inviting Med proved too much temptation and a few riders pulled over and dived into the sea.

Pretty soon half the peloton had joined in splashing around with free abandon.

The furious Tour Director, Goddet, said “Surely the cyclists should have been acquiring or reacquiring the rudiments of their strenuous profession, instead of indulging in these carnival antics.”

Spoilsport.

A Miscellany of Le Tour de France - Day 36

1949 When the bad tempered Hobgoblin of Brittany Moor (or Jean Robic to give him his real name) was accused of throwing his water bottles at spectators he denied it profusely.

With good reason - any flailing bottle would easily wipe them out. Robic was so lightweight he used to fill his water bottles with lead in an attempt to increase his downhill speed.

When the authorities cottoned on, understandably, they banned lead. Being a master of cunning he swapped the lead for mercury – an even heavier substance.
