Fabian Cancellara
Jürgen Roelandts
Mathieu van der Poel
Gino Bartali
Michael Rasmussen
François Faber

I'm not that old so mostly modern riders though two of them made it based only on what I read about them in history. Also, two of them are guilty pleasures :p

Come on....there must be someone from the 90s! :)

I did not watch cycling from 1993 to 2005 except a glance here and there .... I did not like cycling then ...and as it turned out these were the main EPO years

Nothing in GT racing compares to the 80s especially the 86, 89 & 87 tours for me (though I don't recall earlier times and I was a kid in the 80s)..but then the riders seemed to have bigger personailities, etc

Since coming back to cycling Contador, Sagan ,Wiggins , Boonen are the riders with the talent and the personalities
