More Armstrong

So, by his own admission, Armstrong did it. He wasn’t such a legendary cyclist after all. Since he did dope, he must also be compared to all the other big cyclists of the past who may well have been doped as well, and then he falls far behind, basically a one trick pony specializing in the TdF.

Eddy Merkcx, for example, won the TdF five times (four of those consecutively), the Giro d’Italia five times and the Vuelta d’Espana once, and he’s not the only one to have won all three. Hinault, Contador and three others also did, Hinault winning all of them more than once, including five TdF, three Giros, two Vueltas and a TdF/Vuelta and a TdF/Giro double in the same year. Several other cyclists have won two of the three. Here is some more data including some cyclists that should be ranked ahead of Armstrong.
