Michel Montange Alias "Micou"

Born in March 1948. First two-wheelers in 1965, motorcycle license in November 1966 ... I quickly became part of a motorcycle club that included several national speed bikers, so frequenting Monthlery and I immediately bathed inside the bike's world in general, and racing in particular, which began to bubble after a big hollow period. A level missed in 1967 and photo school in 1968/69, so, randomly, photos of motorcycles. In this same motorcycle club, Jean-Pierre Drexler creates the monthly magazine "Les Motards". This is where my first picture appears, then my first report on a run at Mallory Park. The fact of having immediately bathed in the racing world made me live together since the beginnings with all the future French champions: Rougerie, Ravel, Pons, Balde, Fau, Leon, Chemarin etc .... 1970, the army, just deserter a weekend not to miss the Grand Prix de France at Le Mans. January 1971, my first job: journalist photographer at Automoto, created by Michel Hommel, who will become Moto Journal at No. 42 in autumn 71. I left at the end of March 2008 when I retired, with some infidelities at the beginning with the monthly mag "La Moto" (Hommel), "Sport Moto" (Bussillet, Beau, Rouge, Boulme) and "Moto 1" (the aptly named, number 2 has never been released). Very present in speed and endurance at the beginning, I turned towards trail and enduro when the phenomenon appeared in France, but my main job was photographer for bikes tests. I took a break from a few years in the mid-70s during which I realized paintings ... motorcycles and helmets pilots.

Phil Read (John Player Norton # 21) and Peter Williams (John Player # Norton # 22) fight hard, but it's Paul Smart (Ducati) who will be the winner of the 200 Miles of Imola 1972.
Note that Read has a double disc, unlike Williams.
