Bartali on the Croix-de-Fer

From "Miroir Sprint" 17th July 1948
Cold, wet day on the Croix-de-Fer, heading for the stage finish at Aix-les-Bains during the 1948 Tour de France. Here Louison Bobet leads Gino Bartali (striped cap) and André Brulé (not sure who forth rider is in light cap). Bartali won this stage, the previous stage to Briançon, three other mountain stages, two of the longest flat stages, and the Yellow Jersey..

Reference from the Wool Jersey
