Col de Peyresourde - stage 15 - Tour de France 2007.
The fly of the last motorbikes.

Other suggestions!

J. Rujano on El Escobero and two days later on Alto de la Letras was truly, truly epic.

Fabio Duarte on Alto de la Linea also deserves a mention. In the last 5kms he put minutes into everyone. The clock is ticking, but I still believe F. Duarte is a very rare talent. 2013 is make or break!

Vuelta a Colombia 2009 was absolutely spectacular.

I think the conditions made it a classic stage. With Vino and Evans pushing it along at the front. Not dramatic, just a real hard stage in miserable conditions.

My vote goes to Cadel Evans Galibier 2011, who grabbed victory from the jaws of defeat. This was Zoncolan leveled, Verbier vanquished, RvV caught and passed, Sastre undone: I will never forget the way Cadel dashed Andy's hopes, and he repeated it the next day on the same mountain for emphasis.
