1962 World Championship: Smart Stablinski

via Cycling's Golden Age: The Horton Collection

Wonderful poster of the World Championships in Brescia, Italy 1962. Frenchman Jean Stablinski was known to be a crafty rider, as he climbed the last hill in the large chain ring he awaited the moment his opponent reached to shift, he attacked never to be seen again until after the finish line.

He had the road smarts to win the world road race.
