As I said, "notwithstanding accidents".Schachmann and Vingegaard, though.
Put what into a nuclear container? I think once you've burned it, and chemically disolved the ashes, there isn't be a whole lot left.Please close this thead. Then burn it, chemically dissolve the ashes, put it into a nuclear container and shoot it to the most distant milkyway possible.
It’s obviously hard to compare with other sports but it seems like that’s not a very remarkable record. Especially if the original point was that these 6 are head and shoulders above the rest? If you picked the six best cross country skiers, wouldn’t they win a higher percentage? The six best tennis players would (on the men’s circuit) win, what, 95 % of the tournaments they played in?Despite all the ridicule this thread and our starting hypotheses got, if we look at the WT races this year (15) 8 of them have been won by the big 6. If we look at the single stages as well, it's even more spectacular.
4 of 7 UAE
5 of 8 PN
6 of 8 TA (5 of them started there)
At Catalunya none of them started, so none of them won any of the 7 stages.
2 of 6 Basque
So if all of them are in a race they won't leave many crumbs.
(I may have counted wrongly here and there, I tend to do that...)
