    Old TdF photo?

    That's how the caption of the photo was sent to me. Couldn't figure out how to make it a full photo.

    It's titled something like an early Tour de France. It shows German soldiers with their rifles ostensibly pedaling in France during the occupation.

    The so-called mechanized Germans relied on many tens of thousands of horses as well as bikes.

    I wonder how much of a disruption of the system would take place if you where to post the photo down in the "professional cycling "forum? now where do you find a shat disturbing symbol?

    The 1940 TdF I presume. I think that was Team Luftwaffe.
