Federico Bahamontes won a stage. the KOMs title and wore the yellow jersey for six days becoming the first Spaniard to win the Tour de France.

Love the wool national team jerseys and of course, the popularity of cycling caps of that era. From left to right: Anquetil (blue rain cape), Gaul (Luxembourg National road champion) and Bahamontes.
