Phil Anderson's 1982 Peugeot Race Bike

Cycling Tips has a nice article by Rupert Guiness about Phil Anderson's 1982 Peugeot racing bike. With enough photos to keep C&V'ers happy.

https://cyclingtips.com/2019/01/phil...an-82-peugeot/

I hope it's OK to make this kind of reference. I've never done it before. Apologies beforehand if I'm in the wrong.

This is great. Thank you for posting. I just picked up a 1982 PXN 10 so it was fun reading about the differences between the Pro 10 that came out of Peugeot's prestige works and the PXN 10 which is what I have.

Isn't there an unwritten law that all references to recent bike pick-ups must be followed by pictures?

Not entirely unwritten, very often quoted, "pics or it didn't happen" all but a bedrock tenant.

Back during his time with team Motorola, he was at corporate PR event with mates. Anyways, I was bike commuting with another fellow, both of us at different companies but close proximity. At my friends workplace, he had a lady co-worker that I thought mentioned was related to Phil.

Anyways, that co-worker told Phil of my friend and was into cycling, yada...

Phil took the few hours and came to visit my friend and that co-worker. Gave him a signed team Motorola jersey. Really cool of him.

Oh, and that Pro 10 restoration looks awesome.

Thanks for posting. When I first starting racing and following the pros, I was a fan of the brash, aggressive, and formidable Anderson. Here I am as a just-turned-15-year-old in a Phil Anderson-inspired Panasonic jersey--on a Bernard Hinault bike of all things! (Forgive the poor image quality; it's a screen shot from an old VHS tape made during a cycling camp run by Davis Phinney in Colorado, but that's another story.)

Thanks for posting this link. *I love the looking over the older race bikes. *They're so much more elegant looking compared to the plastic carbon fiber bikes of today.

The big fellow wins big at the 1983 Amstel Gold. Completely different paint and graphics from the 82 bike but his jersey remains checkered flag. Simplex shift group, Maillard hubs.

It is indeed and I think it was the first professional win for both rider and the machine, too

^ The top test pilote pushing into the unknowns. Would be interesting to hear his commentary. Jumped ship and in 84 went to Panasonic -back to riding steel.

In the early ‘80’s, you could drop into Pine Street Cycles and see one of Phil A’s bikes behind the cash register. He was spending part of the off seasons in Seattle during his first marriage and used Pine Street as his go to shop. He left one his bikes there so he would have something to ride when he was in town.
One day on a ride near Green Lake, I saw a rider headed my way. The rider was far enough away that I could’t tell who it was, but not only was he tearing up the road, but he was so smooth, and so relaxed. Even if you had never heard of the sport of bike racing, you could have told that he was world class at what he did. As he passed, I figured out it was Phil. The image is still as fresh today if it had happened this morning.

Anderson had his famous Yellow Jersey day (the first for a non European) in the '82 Tour de France riding a PX-10DU (Vitus 979) and rode the PY-10FC extensively in 1983, rotating with the Pro-10. He like Sean Kelly proved big, powerful riders could ride and win on non steel racing bikes.

That's a great article and I think it's great that Phil got one of his bikes back. It always strikes me that for as many bikes as Peugeot produced, the bikes from the Prestige shop were very rare. At its inception, the shop had 5-6 people, but things got smaller and they were down to 3-4 by the closing in 83-early 84. So you are more likely to see a PY10CP from the late 70's than a PRO 10 from the early 80's. These bikes are great examples of a time when the suppliers to the pros really did make an effort to give their riders the best possible equipment to do their jobs.

Here is my 1982 Peugeot Pro-10. Took about eight years before I finally scored one in my size.

Ideally, I'd like to fit this out with the rare Team issue Simplex front and rear derailleurs but they are very hard to find. I have one on my PY-10FC but not the even rarer front derailleur with the larger clamp size for these.

Nice bike, Peter. It took me about 30 years to find mine!...I wanted to put some money that I had received as high school graduation gifts toward the purchase of one just after I had graduated high school, but my father was not so enamored with the idea. It was the only time he ever gave me bad advice. My search wasn't constant or exhaustive, but I had my eye out for 30+years for the right one in the right size. It hasn't disappointed as it is a special machine to ride...not every day, but not once a year either...
As for the team issue derailleurs, that's a tough one as there were just SO few of them. (By the way, I have enjoyed and directed several friends to your excellent and exhaustive article on the Vitus frames)

Terrific era.
Though, the carbon bikes were out of rotation and replaced with another after 'x' amount of races during a single season.

Fascinating to see the giant Peugeot company make transitions. The old PX-10 was the vastly produced everyman affordable racer that the pros had. Contrary to the early and exotic carbon. I would imagine were very low production, or as profitable.

According to someone who works at Peugeot Cycles research and development in the early 80s, they produced about 60 Pro10 and 600 Py10 in a year.

The Peugeot squad was strong one, and enthusiasts of Grand Tours should not forget the Foreign Legion of Sean Yates, Stephen Roche, Robert Millar, Graham Jones and Anderson, and for the sake of balance you chaps - on the wrong side of the pond - should consider the big man of the peloton (BiTD) - Sean Yates.


If I remember correctly Anderson* turned professional in 1980 and wore the TdeF Yellow Jersey for the first time in 1980 - taking it in the Pyrenees.


John.


*Anderson was born in the UK.
