Jimenez buried in El Barraco

Jimenez buried at his birthplace in Spain

"He was one of the old-style riders," said five-time Tour de France winner Indurain. "He appeared just when you least expected it and fans loved him because he was devastating when he was at his best. He never rode to finish second."

Born in the province of Avila close to the Gredos mountain range, Jimenez became a favorite with the cycle-mad Spanish public for his spectacular performances in the hills, particularly in the Vuelta a Espana.
