Four Articles from Le Perche
(PBP 1999)
(Coverage in Le Perche, a local paper, from the control town Mortagne, pages 28-29, 26 Août 1999)




The control town of Mortagne au Perche holds a unique place in the history of PBP. Being on the N12 it was on the original route. When the the route moved away from the N12, Mortagne was the only original control town to remain on the route (other than Brest of course). This newspaper issue was produced during PBP 1999 - riders were able to pick it up on their way back through town on the return leg. (That's how I got this - it sparked my attention because I saw a photo of myself catnapping on a cafeteria table not too many hours earlier. Very surreal.) EF
