Default Most Dominant in the Giro?

Let's go

How great Contador was, Basso was just insane. No clinic talk please. Just discuss who was more impressive and dominant.

Seriously that shape was so ridiculous. I'm sure he would have done the double, maybe even the triple? Prob not but shape was so good, maybe

I would rate the 2003 competition slightly higher.

And had Frigo been there I doubt that the gap to second would have been that big in 2001.

But I do see why Simoni in 2001 can be considered dominant.

The TT and his performance on the penultimate day were simply outstanding.

yes, but we're not voting the strongest. The poll says most dominant so 2001 it is

Is he still acting as a consultant with Colombia Coldeportes? I recall he had some type of consultant/advisory role in their initial season.
