The Guardian has a good obituary:

https://www.theguardian.com/sport/2019/nov/13/raymond-poulidor-obituary

I've always liked the story about Anquetil saying to Poulidor, when Poulidor visited him on his deathbed: "Well Raymond, I'm afraid you're going to be second yet again".

While it's sad to hear of his passing, his certainly seems like a life well-lived. Chapeau, Raymond!

“A Monument”

That is very powerful and elegant praise.
