    (July 16, 1964- )
    Born in Villava, Spain
    Road racing cyclist
    Won five consecutive Tour de France races (1991-95)
    Won a gold medal at the Atlanta Olympics in the individual time trial (1996)
    He was nicknamed 'Big Mig.'
    His methodical approach to the Tour de France, emphasizing winning the time trials and holding on in the mountains, was criticized in some quarters for lacking excitement.
    He was a client of sports doctor Francesco Conconi, who introduced the performance-enhancing drug EPO into pro cycling.
    He got his first bicycle as a present for his tenth birthday. It was stolen when he was eleven, and he worked in the fields alongside his father to buy a new one.
    He was known for his humble and quiet demeanor.
    His resting pulse rate was an incredible 28 beats per minute (compared to an average of 60-72 bpm).
    A sportswriter noted about his fifth Tour de France win, 'There wasn't a tactical error, never a scare, no moments of weakness.'
