From the '64 Tour, Possibly the greatest Tour battle of all time:

Years later, undisputed Tour king Anquetil nearly lost his fifth title after overdoing it at a VIP cookout on the rest day—he was dropped on the first climb in the Pyrenees and watched as victory rode away from him. In a moment of panic his team director, Raphael Geminiani, handed Anquetil a bottle of champagne, saying, “Either this works or it doesn’t.”
