    The 2018 Rouleur Classic in London saw Eddy Merckx and Beryl Burton, two undoubted legends of the sport, inducted into the inaugural Cycling Hall of Fame.

     

    Joining the two greats was Ernesto Colnago, recipient of the Patron award, presented for services to the sport of cycling for producing some of the finest bikes on the planet for over sixty years.

    For the 2019 Rouleur Classic (October 31 – November 2) our panel has drawn up a shortlist of contenders from the world of cycling.

     

    From the great Fausto Coppi to the all-conquering Marianne Vos to the pioneering Tullio Campagnolo, we have picked a group of amazing people who all deserve inclusion this time round – but only three can be inducted…

     

    And this is where you come in. Over the coming months, Rouleur’s editorial staff will champion their personal favourites for receiving the awards: how Greg LeMond opened the eyes of America to bike racing; how the ‘Blond Bombshell from Bournemouth’ Marguerite Wilson held every British long-distance record in existence; how the unique vocal delivery of Daniel Mangeas became synonymous with the Tour de France.

     

    Vote for your own personal favourites from the three shortlists below. One lucky winner will attend the opening night of the Rouleur Classic in London on Thursday, October 31 and see the awards ceremony in person.

    1. Perhaps, given recent events you might consider removing Patrick Lefevere from the list.

    2. delighted 2 see beryl was inducted into the hall of fame (but) surprised that marguerite wilson had been nominated !! & not eileen sheriden!?

    3. It is remarkable that Alfredo Binda is not on your list, as he is the only rider in the history of cycling to have dominated the sport on a level comparable with Merckx and arguably even more. Also surprised not to see Costante Girardengo, the first ever “Campionissimo”. Both of these legends of the sport were far greater and more successful than the likes of Moser!

    4. Very hard to choose, all greats of cycling obviously. The greatest ‘patrons’ the hardest to choose, as they work behind the scenes, but Tulio Campagnolo must be one of the greats, given the quality of the components his firm produced, and the innovation with which he drove cycling technology forward.

    5. Terrific post but I was wondering if you could write a litte more on this subject?
      I’d be very thankful if you could elaborate a little bit
      more. Many thanks!

    6. First of all I want to say great blog! I had a quick
      question in which I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to writing.
      I’ve had a tough time clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts
      out there. I do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually lost just trying
      to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or tips? Many thanks!

    7. Hey there! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site?

      I’m getting fed up of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers
      and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be fantastic if you could point
      me in the direction of a good platform.

    8. Greate post. Keep posting such kind of info on your site.

      Im really impressed by your site.
      Hello there, You’ve performed an excellent job. I’ll certainly digg it and personally recommend to my friends.

    9. I’ve been surfing online greater than three hours nowadays, but I never found any fascinating article like yours.

      It’s lovely price enough for me. Personally, if all website owners and bloggers made excellent content material as you
      probably did, the internet shall be much more useful than ever before.
