Raphael Geminiani raced as a professional from 1946 to 1960. He won the mountains competition at the Tour de France in 1951. His best overall place was second in 1951 behind Hugo Koblet. He won seven stages of the Tour between 1949 and 1955 and wore the yellow jersey as leader of the general classification for four days. He won the national championship in 1953, the mountain competition of the Giro d’Italia in 1951, and third place in the Vuelta a España in 1955. In 1955, Géminiani also finished in the top 10 of the three big tours (Tour de France, Giro d’Italia and Vuelta a España), equaled by Gastone Nencini only in 1957

After retiring from racing he moved into team management as a directeur sportif,  Géminiani’s management career reached its height in the St-Raphaël and Ford-France teams with Jacques Anquetil. As a partnership, they won four Tours de France, two Giro d’Italia, the Dauphiné-Libéré, and then next day, Bordeaux–Paris.
