Sam and Cadel at the top is spot on, but Adam Hansen is no MTBr. He may have won a road race on dirt (the Croc Trophy) twice, but thats it. He's even admitted himself he's a roadie.
I think you could throw in: Trent Low and Lisa Mathison (our only XC world champs); Chris Jongerwaard (controversial, but has more national titles than most); Sid Taberlay (our most recent XC world cup podium placer); James Williamson and Jason English (both have won the 24hr worlds, but weren't part of a movie); Nathan Rennie (a tool, but a long-term world cup campaigner with an overall title to his name and a former Jnr World Champ) and Johnny Waddell (DH legend, come back kid and general hard nut).
