Stablewski or Stablinski? Because his Polish-origin name did not resonate with French ears, young Stablewski changed it to Jean Stablinski at an early age.
Jean Stablinksi, who was born on May 21, 1932, the French rider was 20 and good enough to turn professional, and from then on he chalked up a list on wins to make all but the most illustrious riders envious. Five stages wins in the Tour de France, and victorious in a wide range of single day races, including Paris-Brussels, Grand Prix of Frankfurt, Tour of Belgium, Baracchi trophy (with Jacques Anquetil), and Amstel Gold Race, in addition to being a four-time French Road Champion, 1962 World Road Champion, and the overall at the 1958 Vuelta a España.
