That was fun to watch, so often we only get to see who's a poor descender.

My vote for best descender is always Sean Yates.

I've honestly never seen that before. Is that a spoiler on his back for descending? God, those were some close calls with the biker going uphill and the vehicles near the end. My pulse was quickening.

Quizzing older riders a few years ago, the answer was almost unanimously Savoldelli.

Some of his descents available on YouTube are amazing.

Another to remember: Cancellara.
