1967 Vuelta a España
During that Vuelta, Ducasse was in escape groups in the fourth and fifth stage, and became the leader in the general classification. In the mountains, other cyclists attacked, but with the help from Janssen, Ducasse was able to keep his time losses limited. It was different in the individual time trials: Ducasse lost 11 minutes in the first time trial, but he could afford this and was still the leader. In the second time trial, the penultimate stage, Ducasse lost time again, and this time his team leader Janssen took over the lead. Ducasse finished the Vuelta in second place, and was the surprise of this Vuelta.
