Bresson's Velodrome Photos

Bresson Velodrome 02
I was revisiting Henri Cartier-Bresson in some photo books of his work and found these brilliant velodrome photographs from the late 1960's. Looks like classic Six Day Race stuff.

And for some Henri Cartier-Bresson/May 1968 Demonstration Cycle Chic, check this beautiful shot out...

The Vel' d'Hiv top in the first one suggests it's at the Velodrome d'Hiver, which would date it to 1959 at latest when it was demolished. There's a series he did called At the Vel' d'Hiv which dates from the 1957 6 day by the looks of things.
