Biography

After winning the gold medal in the team road race at Antwerpen in 1920 and placing ninth at the 1921 World Championships in København, Marcel Gobillot turned professional. He had a number of podium finishes, including second places at Paris-Bourges (1924) and Paris-L’Aigle (1927). His only victory, however, came in 1924 when he won the Criterion of Alençonin. Gobillot changed teams almost annually, riding for Peugeot-Wolber in 1923, Alcyon-Dunlop in 1925, and Meteor-Wolber in 1926. He retired in 1931.
