OP said list was alphabetical. Not sure why the numbers, though.

I would think Bobby Julich needs to be in there somewhere. A podium at Le Tour, even in a down year, deserves something.

IMO, the list has to include Alexi Grewal. Grewal's dramatic win at the 2004 Olympics, added to the success of Lemond changed the trajectory of US cycling.
I'm pretty certain you're off by 20 years.
