Luciano Pavarotti. He should have gotten out riding more often.

Check out the 2020 Ricky Powell documentary on Showtime. It's really good. The photographer died last year at age 59. Here's the hustler back in the day.



And one of his photos:

I was watching the 3-hour documentary, My Journey through French Cinema and reminded how great is the 1939 film, Le jour se lve. Jean Gabin (below right) rides a very beautiful looking road bike in it. The way its handled, it seems lightweight. Couldn't find a film still. I assume he was a big cycling fan.
