1953 Winners
Marking several new milestones in the 1953 Tour de France, this art print is a mid-century spin on the multicoloured combination jersey introduced in 1985 and used until 1989.

Featuring the cyclists Louison Bobet, Fritz Schär, and Wout Wagtmans, this art print brings together the three ground-breaking riders from 1953.

Louison Bobet was the first ever rider to win the Tour de France in three successive years, from 1953 to 1955.

With the dashing demeanour of a Hollywood matinée idol, Bobet refused to wear his first yellow jersey as it was made from synthetic fibres which he considered to be unsuitable. Whilst the sponsor may not have been happy, as they were the manufacturers of the synthetic yarn, a pure wool version was hurriedly created overnight for Bobet to wear the next day.

Fifty years after the first Tour de France, the 1953 Tour introduced the green jersey for the leader in the points classification. In 1953 this was won by Fritz Schär but, as Fritz was wearing the yellow jersey after winning the first stage, the first rider to actually wear the green jersey was the points runner-up, Dutchman Wout Wagtmans.

Usually seen as the best sprinter’s jersey, then called the Grand Prix Cinquentennaire, the sponsor of the points classification was the lawnmower-manufacturer La Belle Jadinière, who chose the grass green colour.

The super-combativity award was also introduced in 1953, and was won by Wout Wagtmans, for being the most combative cyclist of the entire Tour. Wout entered the Tour de France eight times, and wore the yellow jersey in 1954, 1955 and 1956, winning four stages.
