Biography

Adolf Christian (3 June 1934 in Vienna – 8 July 1999 in Vienna) was an Austrian professional road bicycle racer. In 1957, Christian finished 3rd place in the general classification of the Tour de France, and he is the only Austrian to legitimately reach the podium. (In 2008 Bernhard Kohl also reached 3rd position but was later disqualified for doping.) In January 1958, he became Sportsman of the Year 1957.

His profession was a decorator in his own company.
