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 bound book written by me a number of years ago, comprehensively reporting upon the team's racing as well as the two main stage races that it entered ie The Tour of Italy - the Giro-  five reports as well as the two 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. See below about the 2018 republication of the book.
