Odile Defraye

Odile Defraye (or Odiel Defraeye; 14 July 1888 - 21 August 1965) was a Belgian road racing cyclist who won three stages and the overall title of the 1912 Tour de France, which was the last tour decided by a points system instead of overall best time. He was the first Belgian to win the Tour.

At the 1913 Tour de France, Defraye held the overall lead after stages 2 through 5 before relinquishing the maillot jaune to Stage 6 and eventual winner Philippe Thys. He participated in six tours between 1909 and 1924.

Other major wins include the 1913 Milan-Sanremo, a one-day classic, and four stages and the overall for the 1912 Tour of Belgium.
