Pour Un Maillot Jaune







Claude Lelouch created this spellbinding documentary on the 1965 Tour de France.

A captivating and wonderful account of the world that revolves around the race. From the journalists asleep on the back of the motorcycles to the final moments of the great Federico Bahamontes abandoning the race on stage 10 and stepping into the camion balai and retiring from the sport forever. Felice Gimondi wins the race from the eternal second Raymond Poulidor forever France's tragic hero, favored to finally claim victory due to Jacques Anquetil deciding not to ride.

Enjoy!
