But no Woodbines!

Great photos though. I especially like the one which I presume is Paris-Roubaix, but they're all good.

A search on the web and I found the picture. It's Roger de Vlaeminck in Paris Roubaix. It must be taken between 1973-1977 when he rode on the Brooklyn team.

Certainly looks like Hinault; he rode for that team which was a health-food company, I think.  I remember there was some kind of protest but Hinault's reaction looks pretty extreme;you could kill someone with a bare-knuckle punch like that and he certainly doesn't look as if he was doing it in self-defence.  Do you know what happened?
