A highly dynamic sequence featuring Ric Hochet in his famous Porsche 611 (this time, the coupé model), who not only manages to knock down and disarm a biker (thanks to his famous savate move!), but also to force his way into the building's garage. Tibet synthesizes this action in a series of rapid field-and-counter-field sequences. The remarkable plunge in the second frame allows him to make the scene legible,
one of the album's most spectacular scenes.
