Growing up near the Jura Mountains, he was a cross-country skier as a teenager before taking up bicycle racing. He spent two years in Algeria on military service before starting his professional cycling career relatively late. He raced as a professional from 1964 to 1974. In 1967, Pingeon won the Tour de France. In 1969, Pingeon won the Vuelta a España and finished second behind Eddy Merckx in the Tour de France. He took a total of four Tour de France stage wins and finished in the top five of the race's general classification three times during his career. After retiring from competition he worked as a consultant for Radio Télévision Suisse between 1979 and 1998. Pingeon died on 19 March 2017 at his home in the village of Beaupont in the Ain department, about 100 km away from his hometown of Hauteville-Lompnes, after suffering a heart attack.
