Default Wins in Grand Tours?

Does anybody have a list of all of the cyclists who have won two of
the three "Grand Tours" (EG The Giro d'Italia, The Tour de France, and
Vuelta A Espana), at least one time each in their careers?

That is, I'm look for a list of cyclists who have won:

A) The Tour de France AND the Giro d'Italia

OR B) The Tour de France AND the Vuelta a Espana

OR C) The Giro de Italia AND the Vuelta a Espana

Also, which of cyclists who managed to achieve one of the above, was
able to accomplish the feat in the SAME YEAR?

Finally, how many cyclists have won all three Grand Tours at some
point in their career?

Hi Heather - I liked that info - thanks.

The Vuelta changed from spring to autumn in order to attract more riders
from outside Spain; the Giro was seen as a better warm up for the Tour
and so most of the top riders chose to skip the Vuelta. The race also
got hillier and the stages got shorter to make the whole three weeks
more exciting for the fans and it certainly seems to have worked - the
last few Vueltas have been real nail biters. Angliru was probably a
mistake but the Vuelta organizers have really made some good steps to
make the Vuelta a major race in its own right and not just a consolation
prize for riders that didn't do well in the Tour.

me thinks *Isidor Gunsberg* should have been left to google for the
answers himself instead of placing orders to the ng..

Looks like a 10 minute job to me.

thanks for posting this. it's always amazing to ponder the incredible
achievements of multiple tour winners.

the french tour is now the most competitive but was it always the case? if
not, anyone knows when the change occurred?
