Just how old are you? (Just kidding Alpe).Alpe d'Huez said:All time: Rudy Dhaenens, because he rode most of his career that way, but showed he was much more than a domestique. Talk about curse of the rainbow jersey.
The truest domestique ever is probably Andrea Carrea who selflessly and quietly protected Fausto Coppi at all costs. Marcel Ernzer maybe too, he rode for Charley Gaul, and even though a little bigger, rode the same bike size in case he had to give it to Gaul. He would protect Gaul and stay with him as far and hard as he possibly could through the mountains. There aren't too many bodyguards like these guys still around, but their there.
I agree with you. If you look at things relatively he's one of the best riders in the sport considering how well he fills his role. You know he's probably the one domestique Quickstep would love to sign if they had their choice.auscyclefan94 said:Johan Van Summeren
