You had to kill this topic, didnt you

Never mind I will complete my list (with wiki and cq links) just for fun.

Still Ingsve didnt mention Zabel and Dean.

When I finish with this one, I ll make best-overall-tour-rider-withinonecalendaryear-rider list. I thought first list is more representative because there is less resting period, but we can make the second one too.

Thank you all guys, keep them coming.

ps. I ll keep updating the list on the first page.

Hondo also did it once 2011 or 2010 although im not sure if he finished in all races.

Edit in 2010 he finished Tour + Vuelta but DNS in stage 19 of Giro so never mind!

The one season triple has been done 39 times: see here

Lejarreta did it 4 times, and had two top tens each time.

That link made me realize Hugo Koblet was the name of an actual rider. I never knew.

Yes he did. Some quick research shows he was the 32nd rider to do it and the 2nd Australian.

He came:

Giro: 94th
Tour: 81st
Vuelta: 124th

Not bad considering he did a LOT of grunt work for Griepel and Van Den Broeck over the season.

Marino Lejarreta did the triple four times, including trying to win the Vuelta one of those years. The guy was a stud.

Well, not really. The Vuelta was held the last three weeks in April, the Giro in May. As far as I know, the GTs never overlapped, though I could be wrong.

As an aside to that, there are quite a few people who want the Vuelta moved back to spring. Sandwiched between LBL and the Giro (or move the Giro a week forward as well). Food for thought.

Sorry for the digression.
