    In case you don't know the story....
    One of Magni’s greatest achievements also came in a race he did not win. Never a great climber but known for his furious descents, he was competing in his last Giro d’Italia, in 1956, when he crashed on a downhill during the 12th stage and fractured his collarbone. He continued to race, wrapping a tire tube around his handlebars and holding the end in his mouth to help his weakened left arm control the bike.

    ^^^^From Wiki:

    In the 1956 Giro d’Italia, stage 12, Fiorenzo Magni famously broke his left clavicle and still managed to finish 2nd place overall. At the hospital he refused a plaster cast and refused to abandon the Giro in the year of his announced retirement. Magni continued the race with his shoulder wrapped in an elastic bandage. To compensate for his inability to apply force with his left arm, he raced while holding a piece of rubber inner tube attached to his handlebar between his teeth for extra leverage. Since his injury prevented him from effectively braking and steering with his left hand, Magni crashed again after hitting a ditch by the road during a descent on stage 16. He fell on his already broken clavicle, breaking his humerus, after which he passed out from the pain. They put him in an ambulance, but when Magni regained his senses and realized that he was being taken to the hospital he screamed and told the driver to stop. Magni took his bike and was able to finish the stage in the peloton, which had waited for him. Of the evening that followed Magni said "I had no idea of how serious my condition was, I just knew that I was in a lot of pain but I didn't want to have X-rays that evening"
    That is one hard man.

    2001 - Think this was the year Big George got out-gunned by the Mapei swarm.

    Things must have gotten a bit grippy. He looks completely and utterly knocked.

    Perhaps, but I don't get it - why aren't they all taking selfies?

    A modern day one for me. The day Cadel saved/won the 2011 Tour. Single handed dragged all the contenders across the Pyrenees to keep the time loss to a brave (oxymoron) Schleck to a minimum. I watched on a big screen with a few mates and we all stood and applauded when he crossed the line. Such an awesome ride.
