I think Froome / Cobo clash on Cabarga was the best in terms of spectacle.

Why is Valverde in Plumelec on the list and not Evans in Montalcino? That stage is regarded as one of the best GT stages in many years and doesn't even get nominated!

The top 3 riders cunego vino and Evans on the stage. Did they attack eachother at any point? Is beating cunego in a sprint really more of a performance for the ages than guys like schleck degendt nieve etc doing 50k tts through the alpes ?
