1975 Ecuador

Stage 20 of Tour de France was the sole individual time trial.  A lot of solitary battles on the 42.5 km route.  Cadel Evans became the first Australian winner of this historic race.  He was absolutely tuned into winning – as if the God of speed was with him.

This Ecuador stamp is showing a cycle racer ( doesn’t it? ) in the style of their Inca god – in the form of a time trialist.  I wish Thomas Voeckler had come at least third – he did really great, though.
