Don't forget Gino Bartali (winner '37-'38, '48).


Bartali only won two Tours ... 1938 and 1948. He abandoned the 1937 Tour

a
day after crashing in the mountains.


Thanks for the correction.

I think he came up with that after it came out that Lance started the
Tour sick.


IOW, head games.


So, Lance didn't have an excuse for the prologue, he was plain slow?

If only we could all be so "slow"!

He won the prologue last year.
But i get your point, race a 200km stage finishing only 1 minute behind
on L'Alpe D'Huez all with a fever (Ullrich).
