Teddy Richter: A German Champion

January 2nd not only marked the 60th anniversary of Fausto Coppi, but also the 80th anniversary of the death of another world champion cyclist but under very different circumstances. Financial hardship, addiction, mental illness, suicide, murder and war have all left their mark on the peloton. The story of Teddy Richter is not familiar to the English-speaking world but worth the telling.
