we have one of these threads over on I love football, for eulogising our favourite /types/ of player
think we might have had a poll before on sprinters, climbers etc but there are more types of cyclist than those (the tiny climbers, gangly mantis, surly single-minded misanthropes. (actually is millar the only one of these?) etc)...

do love a hard man
Strangely this extraordinary performance echoed an earlier episode in Hamilton's career, when he had carried on riding in the 2002 Tour of Italy with a broken shoulder. He finished second overall but ground his teeth so hard through the pain that he had to have 11 of them capped or replaced after the race.
