A former social worker with command over five languages, Switzerland’s Badmann was known for her dominating bike prowess and her positive attitude. She was the first European to win in Kona and was unbeatable until a bike crash in 2007 left her with a broken shoulder and collarbone. (Photo by Lois Schwartz.)
