Did you know that the 1905 French Grand Prix included a cycle race?

Well it did.  Did you also know that Felice Gimondi won the Tour de France at his first attempt in 1965 and the Giro d'Italia 11 years later in 1976?

For those F1 fans who are also into race cycling and its history - here is a fine bike to go out and reminisce on.   Maybe like me you cannot buy a Lotus 19 but still have fun with an original lightweight steel tubed frame decked out in original alloy Campagnolo components.

Did you know Enzo Ferrari worked with Campagnolo in the 1970s using their F1 car wheels and helped them design their bike wheels?  They also worked with Alfa Romeo and supplied the Lamborghini Espada wheels.
