Brylcreem! Oh, man that brings back memories. Not good ones. But growing up in the '60's if we had something special to go to my mom would get out the "Dipity doo" to keep my hair in place like the guys above. Yuk! Perhaps they felt the same way I did or maybe they felt dapper? That had to be in style.

Can also recall a product called "Butch Wax" which was a transparent red goo for male hair.

If the weather were hot and/or if one were exercising it would melt and drip down the forehead...

Or if you were sitting in front of a fire at Scout camp, as happened to a buddy of mine.

Probably the winter of 1981. Two of the big guns of the DAF-Gazelle-Cote d'Or team, Hennie Kuiper and Adri van der Poel during a winter training ride. Hennie rides a correct Gazelle, even if it is a CX bike, but Adri? A Motobecane CX bike?




Fun fact: until only a little while ago "Van der Poel" was Adri, and Mathieu was "Adri's son". Now "Van der Poel" means Mathieu, and Adri is "Mathieu's dad".

It won't be long before Raymond Poulidor will become "Mathieu's granddad".
