I get it.

Non-sprinter beating Gaviria and the rest of the wannabe sprinters is not worth the discussion.

Luckily, we still have guys like Fatancur to talk about. :cool:

BTW, other than Sagan, who was the last TdF green jersey winner that also won Roubaix and De Ronde?

Tom Boonen.

Sagan is a sprinter. Many things more, but definitely a sprinter.

I'm pretty sure Sagan is the 2nd non-Belgian to do it:

Sagan - SVK
Boonen - BEL
Vanderaerden - BEL
Godefroot - BEL
Merckx - BEL
Van Looy - BEL
Forestier - FRA

Thanks!

I knew about Merckx, but for some reason, I forgot about Boonen.

No worries. It's worth bearing in mind that Sagan is the only rider to do this since the competition was more heavily slanted towards the sprinters.

I know!

I have to add a little note to my Boonen's jersey:

"The best classic rider. Also WC and Green jersey winner." :D

I will write it here cause this would be lost in pre Tour GC talk thread. This year Swiss points competition was really dramatic. Sagan and Bling with tied result and two points ahead Gaviria until his DNS. Could be best green yersey competition in years. Gav will be mighty oponnent especially if he will win few flat stages he will be tough to beat. He is pretty good im the hilly terrain. Bling will be struglle to get serious placings in bunch sprints ( more than Sagan) but could give run for Sagan's money in the mountains. Can't wait.
