Mt Rushmore of US Cycling

ESPN did a thing about each state's "Mt Rushmore of sports" i.e. picking the 4 icons for each state.

The Hampsten interview linked in another thread suggests that Hampsten would be on USA's cycling Mt Rushmore.

Would he?

To me, Major Taylor, Greg Lemond, and Lance Armstrong are locks. Hampsten is an obvious candidate for the 4th spot.

But is Hampsten a lock?

Other candidates?
