Despite winning two MotoGP titles and 38 grands prix, Casey Stoner never truly received the praise he deserved during his career. In retirement, however, the Australian rider's legend status – not to mention his place in The Cult – is assured.

The Cult: Roy Race

As a comic strip, ‘Roy of the Rovers’ was so famous that it entered the English lexicon forever. Sometimes forgotten, however, is the dark and tragic life of its protagonist.

The Cult: Edgar Davids

Edgar Davids was an all-action defensive midfielder who spoke his mind, didn't take any shit, and became an icon in wraparound goggles. For his attitude, his football and his tinted shades, he earns a spot in The Cult.
