This is a question related to competitive cycling. I would like to narrow it down to the historical aspect. 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)

    No information on the picture, so I'm not sure if it counts, but here's a possible "podium girl" from the 1906 Tour De France – Kibbee Oct 30 '19 at 13:04

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it's not about bicycles. It's a historical question about a race awards custom. – Deleted User Oct 30 '19 at 13:36
  • @kibbee that classes as an answer "in or before 1906" – Criggie Oct 31 '19 at 7:12
