Lovely bicycle, but for the record, Maurice Garin (aka the "little chimney sweep") won the 1903 edition of Le Tour on a "Diamant-La Francaise" machine.

1904 was eventually won by Henri Cornet for Cycles JC-Michelin, after the first 4 riders were disqualified!
It wasn't until 1905 that a Peugeot first won, ridden by Louis Trousselier, for the Peugeot-Wolber team.
Still a lovely machine though!

Thanks for the Feedback; I Know that Peugeot Won 4 Consecutive Tours; Could Have been 1905-8!!!
I Remember Reading it, but Lost My Research!!!

No worries man!
You're correct re. their record of wins from 1905-08, four years in a row!
Their riders were also victorious in 1913, 1914, 1922, 1967, 1975 & 1977.
If you want a good read, I can wholeheartedly recommend:

A fantastic, interesting account of the first edition of "La Grande Bouclé" and the political machination's and business rivalries that led to it's inauguration.
The descriptions of what some of these guys were filling their bidons with! Crazy times indeed!
