Nobody were so heavily doped that many times like Lance so no...to be fair!

Amongst the top UK cyclists of all time I would include George Mills (Paris- Bordeaux winner) and Brian Robonson (a pioneer of continental riding for Brits in the 50s). If you include women then add Beryl Burton.

Lets stick to riders I have actually seen:

1 Peter Winnen
2 Eddy Bouwmans
3 Johan van de Velde [Gavia]
4 Teun van Vliet
5 Henk Lubberding
6 Gerry Kneteman
7 John Talen
8 Wout Poels
9 Hennie Kuiper
10 Eric Vanderaerden [allmost Dutch and alongside Eddy Planckaert and Olaf Ludwig possibly one of my most favorite riders/sprinters of all time]

Dutch number 10 would probably be Bram de Groot or Laurens ten Dam, pretty sure they didn't O-vector in their carreers.

You see, not a lot of Post riders

Ricky Enø Jørgensen from Greenland.

3 times national champion in Denmark. Has beaten riders like Sagan and Degenkolb in the U23 ranks.

Career ended due to injuries.

High time to come to that circumstantially. Currently I see only 3 riders who can win something.

1. Vasil' Kiriyenka (official nickname in Belarus is a little terminator)
2. Kanstanstin Siutsou, the most talented domestic rider no doubt for me. To my great regret, he is the brightest example of how belarussian quiet down if they get good money in Europe. A general Siutsou's level is just insane. I keep my hope alive.
3 Jenek Hutarovich. It is a difficult case. According to Huta's coach, he is the laziest pupil for years so only fortuity can help him.

Why can't he add value to say Argos or Cannondale as GT "contender"?

Ambitions and pressure. Siutsou earns good money I think about 200-250k in Sky without excessive ambitions and disturbance. For the note, medium salary in Belarus is $300. In short, it is an eternal problem of riders from ex USSR.

I really don't cease to amaze how Menchov could break though that wall. Seemingly he was 5 times as strong as other spanish iBanesto guys at that date.

Say, Kiri is a great guy maybe the most underrated rider in the peloton. If he had had a special behind-the-scenes assistance that spaniards or italians have, he would easily have hit top-5 in any GT. But who needs it? No one..
