Eventual winner, the Swiss Ferdinand Ferdi Kbler, 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 dAspin. 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 Kbler and he became the first Swiss winner of the Tour de France.
Kbler 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.
