By @rapha: Tom Simpson: The first British rider to achieve success on the Continent, Simpson played on his reputation as an Englishman abroad, winning some of the most prestigious one-day races in the process. Enigmatic to the end, his story is, ultimately, one of tragedy. Aged just 29, Simpson collapsed and died during the Tour of 1967, having pushed himself too far on Mt Ventoux. #kingsofpain
