I think the 4th pic gets a little bit difficult. I can see a case for Overend, but MTB was still somewhat of a fringe discipline when he won his World Championships.

I'd probably vote for the Cash Register because he was so dominant in US racing and the two TDF stages gives him some international cred (and I like him better than Hampsten.)

But its hard to put him above Hampsten , the only american to win the Giro, 4th in the TDF, an epic TDF stage win, and the Tour of Switzerland.

I would have made a case for Floyd, but that went out with the Jack Daniels.
