Jean Robic




Jean Robic (pronounced [ʒɑ̃ ʁɔ.bik]; 10 June 1921 – 6 October 1980)[2] was a French road racing cyclist, who won the 1947 Tour de France. Robic was a professional cyclist from 1943 to 1961. His diminutive stature (1.61m, 60 kg) and appearance[3] was encapsulated in his nickname Biquet (Kid goat).[4] For faster, gravity-assisted descents, he collected drinking bottles ballasted with lead or mercury at the summits of mountain climbs and “cols“.[5][6] After fracturing his skull in 1944 he always wore a trademark leather crash helmet
