Firmin Lambot

Firmin Lambot (born March 14, 1886 in Florennes , † January 19, 1964 in Borgerhout ) was a Belgian cyclist .

Only at the end of his career could Lambot celebrate his greatest successes: in 1919 and 1922 he won the Tour de France . When he won his second victory, he was 36 years old and to this day the oldest winner of this race.

Lambot was not considered a gifted racing cyclist, only through his toughness and his fighter nature he could make up for the lack of class. The Pélissier brothers commented that the Tour de France 1919 - possibly an allusion to its winner Firmin Lambot - was a tour of the farm horses and the coarse workhorses.
