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.

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.

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