TOUR DE FRANCE 1954 print. This print is the cover from a special edition of a French cycling magazine for the Tour of that year. The 41st Tour de France consisted of 23 stages over 4,656 km (2,893 mi). The race was won by Frenchman Louison Bobet, the second of his three consecutive wins with a margin of 15’ 49”. Second was the Swiss Ferdi Kübler with his countryman Fritz Schär in third.
It was a year when many of the big names of the era failed to make an impact on the Tour. Fausto Coppi, Gino Bartali, Raphael Geminiani, Jacques Anquetil, Jean Robic and others failed to finish in the top 10. As far as we can tell, the four riders at the front in this image are (from left) Bartali, Bobet, Coppi and Geminiani.

We supply professionally framed prints ready to hang with a choice of flat black, white or natural oak frames 30mm in width. We choose to use Shinkolite 3mm cast acrylic in our frames - it is lightweight, virtually unbreakable, has greater optical clarity than glass and provides your print with long term protection from harmful UV rays greatly reducing the risk of fading.
Our canvas is 400gsm artist quality, real polyester/cotton canvas with a 2:1 weave structure for highest print quality results. The water-resistant coating allows a wide colour gamut and extremely high colour densities. The canvas can be framed or stretched by your local framer.
Our images are professionally scanned and retouched from original sources in our collection of vintage journals, magazines, posters, newspapers and other ephemera from the 1850s to the 1970s.
Our production and design staff are experts in image restoration and have many years' experience in the design and print industry.
