If you hadn't recognised the man, well obviously Roger De Vlaeminck in his world  champions cyclo cross jersey ahead of Cyrille Guimard. Of course both riders were as good in the mud as they were on the road although in Guimard's case his career was cut short due to a really bad problem with his knees.

RED WHITE & BLUE

The Brooklyn Chewing Gum Cycle Team

1973 to 1977

 

This hard back book written by me just a few years ago, comprehensively reporting upon the team's racing in the two main stage races that it entered ie The Tour of Italy - the Giro-  five reports as well as the years that they also entered The Tour de France, ironically being decisive in obtaining the green points jersey  - Patrick Sercu in 1974, and then the King of the Mountains jersey - Giancarlo Bellini in 1976.

 

All copies of this book are sold out as I kept it to a specialised number that were printed in a Royal Size. However since I have obtained further text and images concerning the team I am proposing to edit my former copy and produce now an uprated addition. The size I may well be the same but right as the present time I am unsure, but one thing I am, and that is it will be a book that I will be surprised if anyone would sell on once they got their hands on it, such is the status that the Brooklyn image retains, hence of course the reason why I wrote it parcially in the first place.
