Unfortunately no one else I know in singapore shares the same interest.
I do have weird interest such as cricket which is really uncommon for a chinese like me.

None who have ever had CQ points, but we do have some South Asian Gold medalists because the Indians also suck at cycling.

I think this list is not full.

First of all the best columbian rider is Santiago Botero. Only columbian world champion (2002, time trial), stages on Tour and Vuelta.

Víctor Hugo Peña - first columbian, witch wear yellow jersey on Tour (in 2003, when he was LA teammate)

Félix Cárdenas - great climber: mountain stages of Tour and Vuelta. First in KOM classification in Vuelta 2003

Mauricio Soler - Tour KOM. Badly retired after the horrible crash on the Tour de Suisse 2011

I think, few years later we can add to this list some new riders (Quintana, Henao, may be Atapuma) - new generation of columbian riders is extremely talented.

Luis Herrara is the only Colombian to win a Grand Tour. he also won KOM in all three Grand Tours. He is better than Botero by a country mile.

Watch Oscar Sevilla impersonate Fabian Cancellara in Colombia and you will understand the significance of an Antioqueno winning the world time trial champioship

I am from Indonesia and I'm not going to do the list. We only have world class athletes in badminton, weight-lifting, and few boxers. I admit I put too few interest in the history and current local scene, but I can still remember most riders that I've watched when I was a child from Tour de Java, when it's still one of people's favorite sport events, but I wasn't sure how they stood among the Asian cycling scenes, or how to compare them with the later generation when cycling was no longer that popular. The only idea I have is that Tonton Susanto is probably the only Indonesian rider known to many Indonesians.
As for international cycling, I have followed the news since the Tour de Java days when I read about Hinault and Kelly in the papers. In the Armstrong's years we have TdF live on tv, and it's the first time I watched world class cycling. And now we have cable tv and internet, though I still don't know if there is other people who use them to watch pro-cycling as much as I do.

I can do my version for Spain or Italy more quickly

Since that poster is from Ukraine, It's also understandable that he values World ITT Gold than a Vuelta win.

Hmmm, guess that's it.
Listing guys like Steinhauser seems pointless.
