Subject: [CR]Top 5 Cyclists Sought

I have a different spin on this....I spent a year and a half at three different Army bases is Europe as a kid, and got to see some pretty good cyclists there....But still, I never saw anyone climb or accelerate on a hill as well as Bob Cook (RIP). And Gimondi, well, he simply was the crown prince of the peloton even with Merckx there.

So, my list is: Bob Cook Eddy Merckx Fausto Coppi Felice Gimondi Charly Gaul

Without going into Pam Fernandes palmeres, her performances are hardly 'on topic' time wise.

Ditto to those nominating Jeannie Longo, great cyclist, but of the late 80's/1990's, she did not win a world championship until 1986 which is outside the 'on topic' cutoff of 1984.

I'd include Pam Fernandes on that list. Pam is a three time paralympic medalist, won gold in 2000 with her tandem partner Al Whaley.

Not much gets in Pam's way, not her type 1 diabetes, not her blindness.

If I owned or could ride a tandem, she'd be my riding partner!

Let me know if you'd like to get in touch with her. I can provide you with the appropriate contact information.

Thanks,

Lee
