In 1810, weaver Jean-Pierre Peugeot started the Peugeot factory with his sons. From 1882 bicycles were also made under the name Cycles Peugeot. They were sponsors of the cycling sport very early on. For example, Peugeot supported Paul Bourillon in 1896, who became world champion sprint in Copenhagen on a Peugeot bicycle. In 1901 the manufacturer sponsored its first cycling team. Peugeot also sponsored the first ever Tour de France winner - Louis Trousselier in 1905. Peugeot was active in the cycling world until 1986 and is considered one of the most successful sponsors of professional cycling. Many great cyclists rode in the Peugeot cycling jersey.
Well-known cyclists from this Peugeot cycling team are, for example, the Dutchman Hennie Kuiper, José De Cauwer from Belgium, the British Robert Millar, the Irishman Stephen Roche, the Australian Phil Anderson, and the French riders Jacques Bossis, Yves Hézard, Pascal Simon, Michel Laurent and Gilbert Duclos-Lassalle. And of course the great French cyclist Bernard Thévenet, winner of the Tour de France 1977.
