UPDATE: Robert Millar (Scottish road racing cyclist)

* Robert Millar won the "King of the Mountains" competition in the 1984 Tour de France and finished fourth overall. Millar was the first rider from an English speaking country to have won the Mountains classification in the Tour de France. This success was the first time a British rider won a major Tour classification, and was unsurpassed as the highest Tour finish for a Briton until Bradley Wiggins was retrospectively placed third in the 2009 Tour de France. He is one of only four Britons to have won a Tour de France jersey competition along with Wiggins, Chris Froome and Mark Cavendish. He rode the Tour de France eleven times completing the race eight times.

His biography states he was born at 6:15 AM (no source given) but Caroline Gerard kindly looked up his birth entry in the registry which states 6:15 PM. Both sets of data and charts are displayed below. Either way, Millar is at least a quintuple Virgo - with both luminaries plus three planets in this sign. (Ironically, his biography is subtitled "Unravelling the Mystery Surrounding Britain's Most Successful Tour de France Cyclist" yet this book leaves the reader wondering if "AM" is a typo or not, and if not, the exact nature of the source of this info).
