Single Painted Metal Figurine
These miniature cyclists are legendary. Generations of children have played with these figurines, and they are the source of some of the earliest cycling memories of several of the greatest personalities in the sport. They are the subject of Janol Apin's charming and unique book Les P'tits Velos and they made a memorable appearance in the pages of Rouleur 11.
This option is for a single, painted rider of the big metal version of the figurines. You receive a rouleur-shaped figurine with this set - as opposed to a grimpeur or a sprinter. The figurines are about 5 centimetres in height.
The figurines come in a wide variety of different colours, but unfortunately we can't take orders for specific colour jerseys.
"Childhood memoriesÃ¢ï¿½Â¦ Sweet perfume of holidaysÃ¢ï¿½Â¦ Among the books, the trinkets and all kinds of souvenirs, they sit, about ten of them, on the shelves of my office."
- Christian Prudhomme, director of the Tour de France
"This was our 'Tour de France of Yffiniac'. It was certainly what made me want to ride the bike."
- Bernard Hinault, French cyclist and five-time winner of the Tour de France
