Didn't Jan Janssen win the Tour on a PX-10? Pretty sure he was on the Peugeot team, and in 1968, I don't know what other model they would have used.

Don't think so... Janssen doesn't show in any Peugeot rosters I have during this era (I always associate him with the Bic team which was Gitane wasn't it?) and the machine he won the '68 TdF (riding for the Dutch national team) is not a PX-10 or least doesn't have the distinctive chrome fork ends etc. Anyway, Peugeot made no claim for the victory!
