Biography

Arnaud Geyre won stage four of the 1955 U-23 Route de France and then was selected for the French national road race team in 1956. He finished eighth at the World Championship road race, and then at the Melbourne Olympics helped the French team to the team gold medal, finishing second individually in the road race to Italy’s Ercole Baldini.

Geyre turned professional and rode with Helyett from 1958-60, winning the 1958 Paris-Auxerre race, and two stages of the Tour de l’Aude. In 1959 he won the Boucles du Bas-Limousin and the Nocturne de la Liberation. In 1961, riding for Mercier/BP/Hutchinson, he won the GC at the Tour de l’Herault, and won another stage at Tour de l’Aude. He continued racing as a professional through 1963, but had no further major wins, and then retired.
