Why Bahamontes? 

Federico Bahamontes, baptised "The Eagle of Toledo" by his home press in Spain, soared higher and faster above the clouds than any climber in history during the 1950's and 1960's. The first cyclist to win the climber's jersey in all three Grand Tours (Giro d'Italia, Tour de France and Vuelta a Espana) this Spaniard was as bad at going down as he was good at going up. 

Legend has it that he once ended up in a Cactus bush whilst descending the Montserrat as an amateur. Later he refused to descend by himself, famously stopping at the top of an unnamed mountain pass during one Tour de France to eat an ice cream whilst waiting for the peloton to catch up so he could take the descent with company.
