Spanish road racing cyclist of Cuban descent, he won the Tour de France in 1959 although he was not considered as favourite but as the best climber (of all time!). Nicknamed "Toledo's Eagle".

Major sport figure of the 20th century, Jean-Pierre Jeunet pays tribute to him in the movie "Amélie" (The Fabulous Destiny of Amélie Poulain".
