OK, now that LA has retired we can do this again. I know riders from different era are not comparable, but, in your modest opinion, who do you think is the greatest rider ever and why?

Coppi
Anquetil
Merckx
Hinault
Indurain
Armstrong
Other

On the Spanish digital version of the EL MUNDO newspaper there is a simliar poll. Take a look here:

I'm not voting. i wasn't alive to see most of those riders and the technology has changed so much that it makes it almost impossible to say who the best rider is. They are all great riders. I think I'll just say Zabriskie for having a sense of humor :D

i'm sorry miss tea, this response is entirely too objective for these forums. our reputation is built on wild speculation and criticism meant to diminish your favorite rider's competetitors' standings in interenet chat room sport polls. this unprecedented level of maturity will not be tolerated as it threatens the abrasive group dynamic.


and besides, zabriskie is a doody-head. :mad:

I've got to agree, what is the point of contributing to a forum where you cannot say something designed to inflame. I think this calls for the intervention of the moderator.
