This has to be one of my favourite sporting moments ever!
And of course, we mustn't forget Anne Mustoe. She looks kind of out of place in a thread like this (I doubt she's ever worn lycra), but I find her incredibly inspiring. There's a bit in one of her books where she's in Western China, and runs into a young chap who has just ridden across the Gobi Desert, with a team of fellow cyclists, a support vehicle, and a translator - and leaves him slack-jawed by informing him that she's just done the same (unsupported). Hah!
