French racing icon Henry Anglade dies

Here is the story from the French sports paper l'Equipe:

Aged 89 and suffering from memory problems, Henry Anglade died Thursday November 10 at the age of 89. He had been twice champion of France (1959 and 1965) and had finished second in the Tour de France 1959.

Born in Thionville in 1933, he was a professional from 1957 to 1967 when he wore the colors of the Liberia, Pelforth-Sauvage and Mercier-BP teams.

A rider with a strong character, nicknamed "Napoleon" by the peloton during his career and great rival of Jacques Anquetil and Roger Rivière, he distinguished himself in the 1959 Tour de France where he finished second behind the Spaniard Federico Bahamontès. In 1960, he wore the yellow jersey for two days before finishing in 8th place in Paris.

Born in Lorraine but from Lyon at heart, he was also French road champion twice, in 1959 and 1965. He also won the Critérium du Dauphiné in 1959.

Suffering from memory problems for several years and refusing to eat, Henry Anglade had been hospitalized at the beginning of November near Lyon where he lived.
