French professional cyclist from 1932 to 1944, nicknamed le nabot ("the dwarf") due to his short stature.
He set the world hour record at 45.767 km at the Vigorelli velodrome in Milan on 3 November 1937. The record stood for five years before being beaten by Fausto Coppi.
Archambaud rode for France in the Tour de France between the wars. He never won the race, but he did win nine stages and wear the yellow jersey.
