Jean Stablinski was a French professional cyclist from a family of Polish immigrants. He rode from 1952 to 1968, winning 105 races as a professional. He won the national road championship four times – 1960, 1962, 1963 and 1964. However he won the world road championship in 1962 and he won the first Amstel Gold Race in 1966 and Vuelta a España in 1958.
