Bernard Hinault is one of the greatest cyclists in history, achieving significant success in the late 1970s and early 1980s. He secured five Tour de France victories (1978, 1979, 1981, 1982, and 1985), three Giro d’Italia wins (1980, 1982, and 1985), and two Vuelta a España wins (1978, 1983), earning him the nickname “The Badger” for his tenacity and aggressive racing style. Known for his versatility, Hinault excelled in both stage races and one-day classics. He won Paris-Roubaix, Liège-Bastogne-Liège, Giro di Lombardia, Amstel Gold, Grand Prix des Nations, and many more. Hinault’s impact on cycling extends beyond his victories, as he became a respected figure for his leadership and determination on the road, leaving an enduring legacy in the world of professional cycling.

Over his illustrious 18-year cycling career, Joop Zoetemelk participated in the Tour de France 16 times, securing victory in 1980. He achieved notable Tour Records throughout his remarkable tenure, including six 2nd-place finishes and eleven top 5 finishes, completing the most stages (365) and covering the most kilometers. Additionally, Zoetemelk claimed victory in the Vuelta a España in 1979 and earned the title of King of the Mountains in 1971.
