This is a question related to competitive cycling, as well as to competitive car racing. I am interested in the political and social aspects, but I would gently ask to leave them out from the specific question asked here.

Does anybody know when and where the first podium girls appeared at a cycling race? (I do not exclude answering myself the question in the near future, I am asking in case someone already did this research)

    I think this is done for horse races too, so now I'm kind of curious how far that goes back. – T.E.D. Nov 6 '19 at 15:34

    Also, the question would be improved by an introduction about what podium girls are – Spencer Nov 6 '19 at 23:02

    They appeared first in 1903, but just selected from locals, casting began in 1950s. – LаngLаngС Nov 7 '19 at 6:29
