Dauphiné, Paris-Tours and Paris-Nice all have the same trophy... Shame on ASO.

1. Giro
2. Toss up between T-A and Paris-Roubaix

Roubaix for me then T-A and the Giro. The Jayco Herald Sun Tour one in my view is also great.

Tie between Giro and Roubaix for best, the tirreno trident in 2nd, LBL in 3rd due to it's size.

Tirreno for being something completely different plus Roubaix for historical value.

T-A for me.
It's just... so awesomely weird!

P-R is nice too, it's just a little to obvious to be honest.

Giro is classic but... maybe that's the problem; in a way it's still too close to generic trophy-styles.
