The first Tour de France stage
A memorial of the first arrival to the summit of a Tour de France stage. The final standings of the day are on top. Under them, for those not able to read french (or dutch!) it says:
"It was a heroic sport fight
between cycling champions.
Jan Nolten, already in sight of victory, was defeated by Fausto Coppi
here, at this spot, after a legendary duel"
The plaque is signed by the "Friends of Jan Nolten" Committee
