Boonen is for me the best cyclist ever. Great sprinter very strong

One of the best one-day riders of the past 30 years.

23Mario Cipollini

Very fast, good showman. Made the sport more popular.

24Marco Pantani

One of the most talented and charismatic ones. And holding the last Giro-Tour -double

The emotion he created, maybe no one else, never.

A great man and a great cyclist he reminded me of the great Fausto Coppi.

30Cadel Evans

Won the most exciting Tour (2011) in absolutely courageous fashion, close second twice also and probably should have won those too, podium in all three grand tours.

World Champion of mountain biking (1998) and road biking (2009), and then he won the Tour de France in 2011.

Cadel is one of the nicest guys in the peloton and he has won the tour de france, making him the only australian winner, and he has never taken DRUGS

31Jan Ullrich

One of the greatest cycling talents. Unfortunately grew up in the Iron Curtain period, which made him susceptible to all kinds of temptations. Physically great, mentally weak, physically and technically unbelievable.

Best cycling young talent of the 20th century, and still managed to come 2nd without doping on the same level as Armstrong. Probably was the greatest rider in his generation of cyclists if drugs did not exist.


32Nairo Quintana

2. in his first Tour de France, and won the white and the polka dot Jersey. He also won his first Giro!

In this years Tour de France he could have easily rivaled Nibali for the yellow Jersey.

This small man will be the future winner of the grand tours (Giro, Vuelta, Tour). He's just beginning...

He will become top 15 on this list in the next 2 years - kevinpedro

37Thomas Voeckler

Tommy comes to play hard, its fun to watch him race, he gives it his all day in and day out-tribute to the cycling world, but not recognized like he should be.

Thomas Voeckler is one of he best cyclest on a bike. He has always given his best ride after ride, sadley though, he has been over shadowed by the dopers. Please look again at this rider and see what a true sportman looks like on a bike. He is fun to watch.

38Lucien Van Impe

1 Tour de France title and six polka dot Jerseys

39Federico Bahamontes

First Spaniard to win the tour and won the king of the mountains Jersey six times

40Erik Zabel

Won a record six green Jerseys in the tour
