Hugo Koblet

Hugo Koblet was known as the “Pédaleur de charme” (Pedaler of Charm) because of his elegant position on the bike and his smooth pedaling style. The Swiss rider also kept a comb, wet sponge and cologne in the pockets of his yellow jerseys so he could look and smell good at the end of stages.
