Tour de France 1959: The monstrous mountains beckon the riders to take the challenge and receive the rewards that lay ahead. Notice the man with the hammer, who awaits the weaker riders. In the group of riders each of the Pellos caricatures represents the elites of 1959. On the top right is defending champion Charly Gaul. Pictured with his flaring nostrils and defiant sneer Gaul leads as the climb begins. See how many start you can identify from the caricatures.
