Wasn't the 91 vuelta before the 91 giro?

I'd say any 3 wins within a 1 year timeframe should count.

For example, with the current schedule, Vuelta 2010/Giro 2011/Tour 2011 would count... the end of the 2011 tour was less then a year from the beginning of the 2010 Vuelta.

But Giro 2010/Tour 2010/Vuelta 2011 would not count. The Vuelta was more then a year after the Giro.

Perico (Pedro Delgado) I believe has the best record in # of top 10 grand tour finishes with 18! Sorry for the sidetrack but I had to insert that because I consider it to be quite an accomplishment.

Question is which rider was able to races in three Grand Tours in one year on a highest level given the opportunity to do so.

EDIT: But also if you can think of someone like Dean up there, mention him too. It would be nice to have as complete list as we can.
Carlos Sastre in 2008 was better than 2010. But I'd consider 3 consecutive GT's not exclusively raced in the same season. Take Carlos Tour 2008, Vuelta 2008 and the Giro 2009. He finishes below 10 when you combine those on 7 when his overall placing are added. Of course this is when the elimiations from the Giro come into play (DiLuca). Pretty damn low and just as legit as doing it all in one season IMO.

I think that the problem with this is that with the former schedule of Vuelta doing the tour and than the Vuelta-Giro double the following season wasn't such a big deal because riders had time to recover from the end of the Tour till the Vuelta. The same with doing Giro-Tour double and than the Vuelta the following season.

Giovanni Lombardi 2005:

Giro d'Italia: 88
Tour de France: 118
Vuelta a Espaņa: 114

Total: 320

Hardly record breaking performances, but at least Lombardi can now see his name in neon lights on the list of tough guys
