Louison Bobet 1925 – 1983

Zonzon won the Tour de France for three consecutive years between 1953 and 1955, the first man to do so. He also won the Mountains Classification of the Giro d”Italia in 1951 and a string of Monuments: Milan-San Remo, Flanders, Paris – Roubaix and Lombardia.

He had a reputation for being urbane, charming, interesting and witty and developed the persona of a Hollywood matinee idol off the bike. His diffident and elegant manner made him less popular in his native Brittany where the rustic, forthright manners of the likes of Jean Robic were favoured.

He spoke out against French involvement against communists in the Indo-China war and was said to have carried messages for the Resistance during the second world war.
