From the VeloArchive.com web site:

"This was the beginning of Vietto's great love affair with the Tour; an affair which was to bring more pain than pleasure. He was to hold the yellow jersey for a total of twenty six days; no-one else has held it for longer without also having won the Tour at some stage."

Amazing! Thanks again Peter.
