Deloffre Jules - Tour de France, 1921

Deloffre Jules, born in 1885 in Caudry, participates in his 9 th Tour de France, throughout his career

The cyclist in question, as well as having an obvious talent for cycling combined with a unique physical, shows a marked spirit of entertainer of crowds during this Tour de France, you see it often becomes almost circus performances.

Not only that: this is astounding, but sometimes he could be seen holding court in the finals stages (and we know the stages as they were), and during his performance, after unimaginable hardships and sufferings, to accompany his personal "show," he was heard to say: "My legs are tired, yes, but arms no !  this proves it! ".
