Link below to the Guardian obituary. One of the BTL comments mentions what Jacques Anquetil said on his death bed to Poulidor; "You will be second again, I'm leaving first". I knew that Poulidor had never won the Tour despite his consistency, but I never knew that he'd ever worn the maiilot jaune.
There's also a reference in the BTL comments to a second obituary... it's excellent, and can be found at http://inrng.com/2019/11/raymond-poulidor-obituary/#more-36636
