The most amazing feat of saluting prowess was this victory pose by Felix Cardenas in the 2001 Tour

How about Cavendish's salute from the ATOC? He said it was in honor of their sponsor DZNuts.

Flecha's and Valverde's are my favorites. One has victories few and far between and the other is as prolific as anyone in the ranks. Plus I'm a fan of Flecha's and a huge fan of Valverde's!

Sastre's salute was good. This one wasn't too bad either:
