Description

Federico Bahamontes

Bahamontes was a tremendous climber in his first Tour de France in 1954; he won the King of the Mountain classification. Bahamontes earned himself the nickname the “Eagle of Toledo” and went on to win the 1959 Tour de France (the first Spaniard to do so) and was crowned King of the Mountains 6 times.

Charly Gaul

Charly Gaul was a national cyclo-cross and road racing champion, an accomplished time triallist and superb climber. His ability earned him the nickname of Angel of the Mountains in the 1958 Tour de France, which he won with four stage victories. He also won the Giro d’Italia in 1956 and 1959. Gaul rode best in cold, wet weather.
