Liked Lemond, but he whined a bit too much. Hinault had that win at any cost attitude. Best name was definitely Jesper Skibby. I just love saying Jesper Skibby.

For me:-
Alf Engers - The King
Eddie Adkins - The Emperor
Laurent Fignon - The Professor
Gianni Bugno - always under-rated, top man though
Big Mig and The Badger - Tour TT riders
Stephen Roche - Great Man

...so many to list. Would be much easier if I listed the ones I didn't like!!

I'm 27 and mine are still alive! Nick Craig! Scott UK rider and Rep. Ive managed to meet him a few times while ive been working bikes shops around the country, I also have been passed by him on the Merida marathon in Selkurk Scotland where he passed me like I was standing still and when I finished I met up with him asked him how he was and he told me that he had been out the night before till 4 in the morning and was riding with a hangover, he still finished 4th!. I have also helped out 2 of the guys who won gold medals at the Bejing Paraolympics, Jody Cundy who's Shimano shoe I heat molded for him on his one good leg the other is a purpose built carbon fibre prosthectic cycling leg and Simon Richardson who's Issac Sonic I built up for him.
Piccy of Nick Craig and I at Tredz in Swansea.
