André Leducq (pronounced: [ɑ̃.dʁe lə.dyk]; 27 February 1904 – 18 June 1980) was a French cyclist who won the 1930 and 1932 Tour de France. He also won a gold medal at the 1924 Summer Olympics in the team road race event.[1]

Career[edit]

Leducq was born at Saint-Ouen. He was world champion in 1924 as an amateur before turning professional in 1927. The following year he won Paris–Roubaix and was second in the Tour de France, becoming popular for his humour. His other victories included two Tours de France (he won 25 stages in nine rides) and the 1931 Paris–Tours. He shares the record for the third-highest number of stage wins in the Tour de France with Mark Cavendish (behind Eddy Merckx and Bernard Hinault).
