Ottavio Bottecchia...

Saw this at el despertar dels herois del fang. The kind of photo you can make up your own story about. Joking around? Cooling off? Something in the eye? Seriously though, it is from a book, so I wonder if there is any historical reference revealing the story behind the image.


  1. surely ought to wash, O. Bottecchia won the TdF of 24, I remember that made some 15 stages over 300 km .. cyclists do not have the means as of today, and had to seek solutions

  2. DYI shower. No soigneur, no masseur, nor any other support staff a team of contemporary riders have at their disposal.
