    Finally winner after many attempts

    After Keith99's interesting thread on "Winners on their first try in the Tour",

    Winners on their first try

    does anyone of you know a rider, who had the most participations in the Tour before actually winning it the first time?

    I have detected one, would like to see your feedback.

    Of the ones I can find:

    Joop Zoetmelk 10th try
    Lucian van Impe 8th try
    Riis 7th try
    Jan Jansen 6th try
    Bahamontes 5th try

    I'm sure there are some more in the 5-7 range.

    There is not anyone else who is later than their 12th try as I checked everyone with 13 or more participations.

    Thank you. I was wondering if there had been anyone else than Zoetemelk.
