Roger Hassenforder collected victories between 1953 and 1959 and was the equal of the greatest. “Pure class”, said Félix Lévitan, director of the Tour de France. But Roger Hassenforder, a brilliant rider full of panache, has above all marked the world of cycling by his four hundred tricks, his facetiousness and his extravagance. This anti-conformist, who – Pierre Chany, from L’Equipe, said was somewhere between Louison Bobet and… Fernand Raynaud – enjoyed an extraordinary popularity among the pulblic, entering by the big door in the legend of cycling.
