In 1998 Marco Pantani, the most flamboyant and popular cyclist of his era, won both the Tour de France and Giro d'Italia--a titanic feat of physical and mental endurance that no rider has repeated since. He was a hero to millions--the saviour of professional cycling following the doping scandals which threatened to destroy the sport.
