French cycling star Louison Bobet (March 12, 1925 - March 13, 1983) is one of just eight riders to win the Tour de France at least three times. He was the first ever to win the race three times in succession, a feat he accomplished from 1953 to 1955. He also won the Tour's King of the Mountains competition in 1950.

Born in St. Meen le Grand, France, Bobet's exceptional career included victories in the French Road Race Championship (1950 & 51), Milan-San Remo (1951), Giro di Lombardia (1951), Criterium International (1951 & 52), Paris-Nice (1952), Grand Prix des Nations (1952), World Road Race Championship (1954), Ronde van Vlaanderen (1955), Dauphiné Libéré (1955), Tour of Luxembourg (1955), Paris-Roubaix (1956) and Bordeaux-Paris (1959).

Louison Bobet died relatively young, one day after his 58th birthday.
