TOUR DE FRANCE 1950 print is a reproduction of the French sports magazine Miroir-Sprint for the 1950 edition of the Tour de France.
Eventual winner, the Swiss Ferdinand Ferdi Kubler, is in the yellow jersey. It was reported that Gino Bartali, captain of the Italian team, was threatened and assaulted by some French supporters accusing him of causing Jean Robics fall on the Col Aspin. Subsequently Bartali retired after winning the 12th stage and all the other Italian riders (including Fiorenzo Magni, who was wearing the yellow jersey at the time), left with him.
The lead transferred to Kubler and he became the first Swiss winner of the Tour de France.
Kubler had amassed over 400 professional victories by the time he retired in 1957 at age 38. He was known as the cowboy due to his penchant for Stetson hats.
