Jacques Anquetil
One of the all-time sporting greats, Jacques Anquetil was the first ever cyclist to win the Tour de France five times, in 1957, 1961, 1962, 1963, & 1964, a feat later equalled by Eddy Merckx.

With a natural sporting elegance and determined single-mindedness, that was occasionally misinterpreted by some fans as offish froideur, the sometimes hostile reception he would get from race-watchers did not hinder the great sportsman from successfully winning and setting records.

He was the first rider to win the Tour de France four successive times, breaking Louison Bobet‘s record of three, and in 1962, Anquetil won at a record speed not beaten until 1981.

The first to win all three Grand Tours, Anquetil won the Giro d’Italia twice, in 1960 & 1964, and won the Vuelta a España in 1963.

Named France’s champion of champions by L’Équipe in 1963, Anquetil was appointed France’s highest honours of the Chevalier de l’Ordre national du Mérite in 1965, and the Chevalier de la Légion d’honneur in 1966.

On the 19th December 1963, the BBC programme “Sports Review of 1963” saw Anquetil win the Overseas Personality of 1963, as voted for by viewers.
