Birthday to François Mahé, who was born on this day in 1930.

In addition, Mahé won stages 2 and 14 in the 1961 Vuelta a Espana, along with the Grand Prix de cannes in 1963. He also won several other stages in the Paris-Nice Classic, Tour de Luxembourg, Criterium du Dauphine Libere, GP Quest-France and Tour of Flanders – throughout the 1950’s.
