Believe it or not there was a time that Great Britain didn't dominate the Tour de France.

Even though Geraint Thomas, Chris Froome and Bradley Wiggins have all donned the yellow jersey on the Champs-Élysées over the past 10 years, a plethora of cycling greats took home the maillot jaune before them.
