And Gino Bartali won in 1938 and 1948, his prime years stolen by WWII. I've often thought that if not for the war, Bartali would have won 5 or 6 times and would be ranked up there with Merckx, Coppi, Anquetil, and Hinault, where he belongs. I thought it was outrageous the low ranking Cycle Sport gave Bartali a while back in their "all-time greats" issue.
