I would add a long list of other drivers/riders to the list but Mike the Bike is always going to be near the top..

many, many others
Dan Gurney
Vic Elford
John Surtees
Malcolm Smith
the list could go on for a while but you get the picture

Oh Captain, my Captain

Steve Yzerman:

A quite man who led by example, his persistence, and toughness, and dedication to his team are so rare today.

By all accounts he is one of the class acts of hockey.

Stirling Moss



From Wikipedia:
Quote:
Sir Stirling Craufurd Moss, OBE (born 17 September 1929 in London) is a retired racing driver from England. His success in a variety of categories placed him among the world's elite – he is often called "the greatest driver never to win the World Championship".[2][3][4]
Moss, who raced from 1948 to 1962, won 212 of the 529 races he entered, including 16 Formula One Grands Prix. He would compete in as many as 62 races in a single year and drove 84 different marques of car over the course of his racing career, including Lotus, Vanwall, Maserati, Jaguar, Ferrari and Porsche. Like many drivers of the era, he competed in several formulae—very often on the same day.
From the man himself:
Quote:
"I certainly had an appreciation of the danger which to me was part of the pleasure of racing. To me now racing is - the dangers are taken away: if it's difficult, they put in a chicane. So really now the danger is minimal - which is good, because people aren't hurt. But for me the fact that I had danger on my shoulder made it much more exciting. It's rather like if you flirt with a girl, it's more exciting than paying for a prostitute, because while you know you're gonna get it, the other one you don't. And I think with driving a motor car, the danger is a very necessary ingredient. Like if you're cooking, you need salt. You can cook without salt, but it doesn't have the flavour. It's the same with motor racing without danger. For me."
