Swiss legend Ferdinand Kubler has died aged 97. He was the first Swiss rider to win the TdF in 1950 and the oldest surviving Tour de France winner. He had been in hospital having come down with a bad cold.


Also passing this Christmas, Canadian neo pro Ellen Watters after a training accident and French neo Pro Etienne Fabre after a fatal fall cross training in the Bauges.
