We prove a version of  Topogonov's triangle comparison theorem with surfaces of revolution as model spaces.

Given a model surface and a Riemannian manifold with a fixed base point, we give necessary and sufficient conditions under which every geodesic triangle in the manifold with a vertex at the base point has a corresponding Alexandrov triangle in the model.

Under these conditions we  also prove a version of the Maximal Radius Theorem and present two topological applications.

This is joint work with Yutaka Ikeda.
