Dutchman Peter Winnen wins the stage on Alpe d’Huez in 1983, beating Jean-René Bernaudeau, the Europcar manager today.

Someone in Colombia was watching and decided to name their son Winnen Anacona but the story goes that the administrative staff in the hospital were confused, Winnen is not a Hispanic name, surely Anacona Senior meant “Winner”? This was what got written on the birth certificate alongside Andrew, as in Andy Hampsten, also a stage winner on Alpe d’Huez. Today Winner Anacona rode up Alpe d’Huez to help his leader Nairo Quintana. I’m sure Peter Winnen was watching.
