INDURAIN Miguel (1964), Spain / Cycling
Nicknamed the Spanish Grandee because of the way he sits up on his bicycle, Miguel Indurain has won every race, except a World road championship. He was winner of the Tour de France five times from 1991 to 1995, of the Giro in 1992 and 1993, World speed record holder, and World Champion from 1992 to 1994. He finally won an Olympic medal in the kilometre time trial in Atlanta. At the end of his career, this victory was probably little consolation for his final, disastrous, Tour de France.
