Cyclists in motor racing were quite rare indeed, but they did organise a lot of UCI World Championships on motor racing circuits : the Nordschleife, Montjuich, Zolder, and several others too. Up to quite recently too, I remember watching the one Luc Leblanc won in Montjuich.

We have already seen here (thxs to Frank) how a WW1 fighter ace turned to race driver and everyone knows the ski champion that liked to race DTM Cool but what surprises me is that the cycling guys dont turn more into motorbikes instead of 4-wheelers Smile

BTW Frank your love for racing is limited to 4 wheels or are you also as devoted to bikes?

I love motorbikes yes, especially its history, and as a matter of fact the only modern racing I now remotely follow is Irish Road Racing Cool . But cycling, no I can't say I'm a fan. Back in the 1990s I followed most every sport I gotta say, hence my seeing Leblanc winning the WC. But cycling I don't really like it tbh - the rigged aspect of it is tiring. Not speaking of the doping thing that is in most every sport anyways, but the fixed races were (are ?) legion and that really sucks.

If that Blink mobile isn't allright, then maybe this one will be?

I found this and it's aparently from the late 80's at, according to the one who took the picture, Brainerd (which we will be visiting in the Trans-Am's later this year cheers ) and an AMA Race Meeting study


Edgar Hinton III (sadly no info, that I can find, on him and therefore the bike)

A quick search in my database returned a 44th place at the 1986 Daytona 200 for him, with that same #182 Suz.

Henri Balas & Robert Neyret, Porsche 910, 1969 Tour de France

after a 5 year absence the Tour de France was back in ‘69, 20 specials were organised spread over 9 days & 4936km
the race started typically in Nice & finished in Biarritz, along the way it passed (amongst others) Nancy, Reims, Dieppe, Vichy & Albi
it also hosted specials at the Nürburgring, at Francorchamps, & the french (road)tracks of Reims, Rouen-les-Essarts, Nogaro, Le Mans & Clermont-Ferrand

… what a period to have been either a driver or fan!!!

The Tour de France inspired me :frank:

Nice one Carlos :top: I hope we'll be able to do another Tour de France one day... Antoine's 1972 TdF of 2012 was easily one of the coolest things we ever did !
