Ivan Gotti - 1995

Le Havre, 5 July 1995. The yellow jersey wearer Laurent Jalabert fell at the end of the fourth stage towards Le Havre. Fortunately, the Frenchman was able to stay in the Tour de France but had to relinquish his yellow jersey that day, much to the surprise of the recipient, the debutant Ivan Gotti. The Italian finished in 44th place in the fourth stage, but recovered the leader's jersey thanks to his regularity at the start of the Tour de France. Gotti arrived at La Grande Boucle to help out Evgeni Berzin but the leader of the Gewiss team bailed out halfway through the race. Gotti finished fifth in his first Tour de France and ended up wearing the yellow jersey for two days. Despite never achieving a victory in the Tour de France he was a two-times Giro d'Italia winner.
