French athlete, a cyclist who twice won the Tour de France (1983 and 1984). Suffering from a painful abscess which affected his ability to sit on his bike, he lost the 1989 tour by a mere eight seconds. His formidable performance on the Tour led to the nickname "L'ogre" and his scholarly looks earned him the additional nickname of The Professor, despite the fact that he quit his university studies. With other titles to his name, he retired from the sport in 1993, and established a promotions company for bicycle racing events. He later established a training camp for cyclists. For the 2009 and 2010 Tours de France, he provided television commentary despite battling cancer in his digestive system.
Married twice, he had two children with his first wife.
He died of cancer on August 31, 2010
