"Gobsmackingly Brilliant" rides of 2000
Also, I'd like to mention Gilberto Simoni in the Giro d'Italia, but not the stage to Bormio, which he won. No, the stage which impressed me the most was the one to Briançon over the Agnello pass. Simoni attacked again, and again, and then some more. If Pantani hadn't been there to throw a spanner in his works, I think he might've cracked Casagrande and Garzelli on the Col de l'Izoard.
