Biography

Louis Trousselier was a French cyclist who rode in the 1900 Olympic Games, although cycling was a somewhat obscure event in those Games. He is best known for winning the 1905 Tour de France and Paris-Roubaix in the same year. After his Tour win, Trousselier reputedly lost his entire winnings in a game of craps that evening. He also finished third in the Tour in 1906. Trousselier's other wins included Paris-Rennes in 1902, Paris-Tourcoing in 1906, and Bordeaux-Paris in 1908. During his career he won 13 stages in the Tour de France, and competed as a professional through 1914. Trousselier was from a wealthy family who had a flower business in Paris, and after his retirement, he settled there to run the business.
