Greatest cyclist of all time?

From Road Bike Rider Online:

Ageless (could any adjective fit better?) Jeannie Longo won France's Trophee des Grimpeurs (Climbers' Trophy) for the fourth time on Sunday. She covered the 62-km (38.4-mile) course in 1:40 to finish more than 3 minutes up. It was reported to be the 1,020th win of Longo's unending career. Next she hopes to make the French team for Beijing. She has won 4 Olympic medals since women's cycling became part of the Games in 1984. Longo turns 50 in October.
