Some French bloke I'd never heard of... indeed, it seems few people have or had. He didn't even win a stage and his win was controversial. However, he DID win the TdF.

That's my year. Rather a sad story isn't it, to win the great race but have the achievement denied because you weren't a 'name'.

The year I was born, the Tour de France didn't happen because of the German occupation.

1959 Federico Bahamontes, The Eagle of Toledo, I have always loved that nickname but didn't know who he was. Great idea for a thread.
