Yeah, it's a funny list. I voted for Magni because, objectively, he is a cycling legend. Not only his palmares, but his awesome work with the Ghisallo cycling museum (I went there this summer, and seriously like 60% of the pro cycling stuff there is from his own collection), make it kind of hard to argue against him. However, it's like apples and oranges to compare him to active or recently retired cyclists - I know he just died so he's on the ballot this year, but comparing ex-pros who raced in mythical times to current pros is not really a great way to do things. I mean, what if he loses? It doesn't really 'honour' him to put him on the ballot, it might be more classy to allot him an honorary 'legend of cycling' award next to the winner of the actual poll, when the results are announced.
Of the others, Freire. Classy rider, one of my very favourites.
