By searching on the internet, you can know a lot about cycling. You can know many things about cycling like tips or advices, places to ride a bike or even the best bikes under 1000 dollars you can have. However, some forget the people who left a legacy on biking. Some forget the people who are known for cycling.
The usual question is, ‘why do we need to know the people known for the sports we love’, in this case, cycling. Do we need to know because they are good or adored by many? Do we need to know so we can cheer for them when we watch their games? Do we need to know so we can be die-hard fans or cyclists? That’s the question, isn’t it? Why do we need to know those people?
I believe every person will have a different answer or will have no answer. There is no right or wrong answer. It is up to you if you want to know. You will decide. For those of you who do want to know, here are some of the famous cyclists that still live:
- Pedro “Perico” Delgado Robredo is a 55-year old former professional road bicycle racer from Spain. Some of his major accomplishments include winning the Tour de France in 1988, Vuelta a España in 1985 and 1989. Today, he works as a sport commentator during important cycling events for Televisión Española, the national state-owned public-service television broadcaster in Spain. Some of his professional teams were Reynolds (now known as Movistar Team / MOV), Seat-Orbea (now known as Euskadi) and PDM-Concorde (or PDM-Ultima).
