************************************

[1] WWI destroyed many of the bicycle teams and had the manufacturers on the ropes financially. Therefore, several French manufacturers formed 'La Sportive', a cycling consortium made up of firms like Alcyon, Armor, Automoto, Clιment, La Franηaise, Gladiator, Griffon, Hurtu, Labor, Liberator, Peugeot and Thomann. La Sportive provided bicycles for about 1/2 of the peloton. The consortium split in 1922, with the individual companies outfitting their own teams. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/La_Sportive

[2] From 1930-1939, Henri Desgrange banned trade teams and replaced them with national teams. All of the riders had to ride the same, generic bicycles which were painted yellow and were badged as "L'Auto", the name of Desgrange's newspaper. The bicycles were (likely) manufactured by Alcyon, due to the friendship between Desgrange and Alcyon manager, Edmond Gentil. Allegedly, Alcyon built the bikes each year, except for 1938. If you count these Tour wins for the manufacturer, Alcyon would be, by far, the most successful bicycle brand of the Tour de France with 16 Tour wins. But counting them as a true "winner", when there was no competition from other brands, seems inherently unfair.[Source: http://forum.velonews.com/topic.php?id=2628]

[3] Lance Amstrong was stripped of his Tour de France victories by the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) in 2012 after an investigation and sanction by the United States Anti Doping Agency (USADA). The sanction is based on doping violations surrounding systematic doping on the US Postal and Discovery cycling teams. The UCI and ASO (organizer/owner of the Tour de France) ruled that there would be no winner named for the Tour de France from 1999 through 2005 (2012) [Source: http://www.cyclingnews.com/news/tour-de-france-organizers-confirm-uci-decision-on-armstrongs-victories ] Armstrong rode Trek bicycles with Shimano Dura Ace components.

[4] Floyd Landis was subsequently stripped of title for a doping violation. Rode BMC - Campagnolo "Record".

[5] Alberto Contador was subsequently stripped of title for a doping violation. Rode Specialized -SRAM "Red".

[6] In 2007, Bjarne Riis admitted to the use of doping during the 1996 Tour de France and offered to return his yellow jersey. The organizers of the Tour de France stripped him of his 1996 Tour de France victory, but did not name a new winner. In 2008, the organizers reinstated his win, but placed an asterisk next to his name regarding the doping offense.

The SCORE:

Peugeot: 10
Gitane: 9 (12*)
Pinarello: 10
Alcyon: 7 (16**)
Automoto: 4
Bianchi: 3
Trek: 2 (9***)

*Gitane purchased Helyett some time in the 1960's, and accordingly claimed (at that time) all of the Tour de France wins of Helyett as their own. It is unknown who built the Helyett bikes that Anquetil raced in the Tour de France: It is possible they were made by Gitane.


** See above post for history on Alcyon.

*** Trek had 7 of its Tour "wins" stripped as a result of the 2012 doping scandal surrounding Lance Armstrong and the US Postal/Discovery cycling teams.
