A guaranteed original French 'Grande' movie poster from 1974 for the Joel Santini cycling documentary "La Course En Tete" (which perhaps best translates as 'Running Ahead' or 'In the Lead') featuring the famed cyclist Eddy Merckx.
Winner of eleven 'Grand Tours' and most significant cycling titles, Eddy Merckx is widely considered as the greatest competitive cyclist of all time.
"La Course En Tete" follows Merckx during the 1973 and 1974 seasons and gained unprecedented access to the public and private life of the sportsman, together with portraying the wider world of professional cycling.
We have read that there hasn't been a better film about professional cycling made since.
This poster is in great condition. It hasn't been linen-backed (see our FAQs), but is certainly a good candidate for backing as it would almost eradicate signs of folding - it is a super poster that needs preserving.
For decades, the cycling world has been plagued by drugs controversy. This poster returns us to the era of the true competitive sportsman - man against man, man against himself. A 'must have' for a cyclist or any competitive person.
We only sell guaranteed original movie posters. We do not sell reproductions.
Note: This poster is priced unframed. Photos showing framed and 'in room' images are for illustration only. Please check our hi-res images and the sizing information shown above.
