    Such a classic shot - all the elements that would make up this shot would still be there in in the same shot today. What I particularly like though is that everything man made - the bike, the car, the motorcycle, even the road surface - has moved on; and yet everything natural - the mountains, the cyclist's physique, and most notably his facial expression - would simply be unchanged.

    the background suggests it was taken from the 'granges du Galibier'

    PhilippeF's suggestion, and note added on the image, look to be spot on. Check Google Street View and Maps - maps.google.co.uk/maps?hl=en&safe=off&client=fire... - the mountain range appears more distant in teh Street View image (wider angle lens?) but there is no mistaking the rocky ridge top-right.

    Doing further research, this picture will have been taken on Stage 7, from Aix-Les-Bains to Grenoble, a whopping 142 miles! (see en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1934_Tour_de_France ). This therefore dates it to 10 July 1934.

    Although the climb of teh Galibier was won by Ezquerra, the stage was won by eventual king of the mountains winner René Vietto
