Jan le Grand (in English) — 2 reacties

  1. I met Jan many times at the Tour de France. Jan was a mentor for my friend Bill Woodul who became the Campy mechanic at many races here in the USA. Sadly Bill has passed. I learned a lot form both these gentlemen. I have always wondered if Jan made some of the Raleigh frames ridden by the Raleigh tem when Peter Post was the director. There is shop in Brielle, New jersey that still has some original Presto frames. The shop owner, Kathy Penna, said she learned to build wheels from Jan in Amsterdam when she was touring Europe in the early 70s.

  2. Jan Legrand build at all or most of the TI-Raleigh team frames. They are sought after frames/bikes with the riders initials and build year stamped in the bottom bracket.
