Marco Pantani, Giro and TdF- 1998
Miguel Indurain, Giro and TdF-1992,1993
Stephen Roche, Giro and TdF- 1987
Eddy Merckx, 1970,1972,1974 Giro and TdF, and 1973 Vuelta and Giro.

I may be missing a few, but these are the ones that come to mind.

Roche also won the World Championship in the same year as he won the two major tours. That is referred to in some circles as the "triple crown".
