The Italians have Coppi and Bartali, the Swiss Ferdy Kübler and Hugo Koblet. It is the most glorious time in Swiss cycling. Koblet and Kübler respect each other, but give no ground. “Hugo is my best doping,” says Kübler. When he trains at the Klausen, Hugo Koblet sits at the bar.

Hugo Koblet is the ultimate stylist on the bike. The first Swiss sports star. A ladies’ man. A “bon vivant” – until he runs out of money. In 1950 he was the first non-Italian to win the Giro, and a month later his first Tour de Suisse. In 1952 he adds the Tour de France.

The TdS duels between the two are deadlocked: Both Ks boast three overall victories, both wear the leader’s jersey for 14 days, each wins eleven stages.

It is however the Tour de Suisse that turns Koblet into no more than a “half-racer”. In June 1952, Koblet falls ill during the TdS. Im Juni 1952 erkrankt Koblet während der Schweizer Rundfahrt. Federation president Carl Senn sends a doctor to the Zurich rider with the order: “Get fit, at any cost!” Koblet is injected with amphetamines against his will and without his knowledge. The treatment damages his heart. Koblet is unable to keep up on the climbs. He can no longer breathe at 1,500 metres.

After the retirement of Kübler/Koblet, Swiss cycling becomes a no man’s land. 1960 and 1961, two Swiss cyclists, Fredy Rüegg and Attilio Moresi, win again, then the Italians dominate with their second or third team (in between, another Swiss cyclist, Rolf Maurer, wins in 1964). Money is tight. The Tour de Suisse is on the brink of collapse. It takes beer salesman Sepp Voegeli from Gippingen AG to provide a guarantee of 92,000 francs in 1966. He works tirelessly and takes over as Tour Director in 1967. His first highlight: Louis Pfenninger (1968) defeats the Italians. The Tour de Suisse is finally on the rise.
