Exactly 100 years ago, Eugène Christophe became the first rider ever to wear the yellow jersey.
Since then, le Maillot Jaune has been worn by almost 300 riders, from ‘5-time Tour winners’ to one-day breakaway riders. One of the most iconic riders to wear the yellow jersey is Eddy Merckx. Exactly 50 years ago, in 1969, Eddy won his first Tour de France. He won the Tour five times between 1969 and 1975 and wore the yellow jersey for an absolute record of 96 days. Other 5-time winners are Bernard Hinault (75 days), Miguel Indurain (60 days) and Jacques Anquetil (50 days).
