Who is the youngest winner of the Tour de France?

Pogacar, who made his Tour de France debut in 2020, became the second youngest rider to win the event at age 21.

The youngest was Henri Cornet, a French cyclist who, at age 19, won the Tour de France in 1904. Cornet never claimed another title in the race after the scoring system was changed the following year to a points system. instead of a time framework. although it was switched back to time scoring in 1912.

Consecutive tour winners

There have been several cyclists who have won the Tour de France in consecutive seasons. Eliminating those whose victories have been stripped, sorry Lance Armstrong, 13 riders have won the race in at least two years in a row.

Lucien Petit-Breton was the first to win it twice in a row when he scored victories in 1907 and 1908.

If Pogacar races next year, he will join Louison Bobet, Jacques Anquetil, Eddy Merckx, Miguel Indurain and Chris Froome as the only drivers to win it in three consecutive seasons. Indurain won the race in five consecutive years from 1991-95, with Anquetil (1961-64) and Merckx (1969-72) tied for the second longest streak with four consecutive victories.

Most Tour de France victories per rider

Four riders are tied for the most overall ranking won in a bike race. Anquetil, Merckx, Indurain and Bernard Hinault have won the Tour de France five times each. Froome has won it four times and Bobet, Philippe Thys and Greg LeMond have won the race three times each.

Already with two victories at such a young age, Pogacar will have plenty of time left to join that elite company. The oldest cyclist to win the tour was Firmin Lambot, who participated in the 1922 Tour de France at age 36. Pogacar already has two wins 14 years younger than Lambot.

Most Tour de France stage wins per rider

Mark Cavendish made history during the 2021 Tour de France when he won stage 13, which tied him with Merckx for 34 stage wins overall. He won four stages during this year’s Tour de France.

He nearly broke the record when he finished strong on the Champs Elysees, but Wout van Aert came in to win the final sprint to the line for his third stage win of the tour.
