'Het is ruim dertig jaar geleden dat de foto werd gemaakt, op de tenting van een klein plaatsje in de Provence, een dag voor Joost, Peter en ik de Mont Ventoux beklommen. Achterop staat: "Kamperen in Bédoin, juni 1982. V.l.n.r. David, Peter, Laura, Bart, Joost, André." Op de achtergrond zie je een blauwe bungalowtent en een klein oranje trekkerstentje. Tegen een hek staat een racefiets. Het meisje draagt een rode bikini en witte teenslippers. Er speelt een verlegen lachje om haar lippen, alsof ze er niet helemaal gerust op is dat juist dit second wordt vereeuwigd.'
