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.

Race of the Year 1971, Mallory Park.
Third in 250cc and 350cc world vice-champion, Jarno Saarinen is invited to touch the dividends of his beautiful 1971 season at the "Race of the Year". The Finnish style so spectacular will integrate the Yamaha official team the following season.
