Our friends at ProcyclingStats have given users of the site an additional feature to go alongside the mountain of data, quizzes and games on their website.
The favourite 15 gives you an opportunity to pick your favourite riders. Your picks will roll up to provide the top 500 riders of all time.

I am planning to explain the why is upcoming posts.
You can then decide if I was right to add Chiappucci at the expense of Miguel Indurain!!
