But only 19 days younger than Gimondi:

If he podiums the Vuelta this year he will be the youngest to podium all three. He will have to win the Vuelta this year and win the Tour next year to be the youngest to win all three. I think he'll do the first, not the second.

Riders who have worn all three GT leader's jerseys:

Active riders in bold.

McGee 2/3/4 = 9
Millar 2/3/3 = 8

*Contador is currently wearing the red jersey, so this list will be updated when the Vuelta ends.
If Contador manages to defend the red jersey on all remaining stages of the Vuelta, he'll equal Moser. Top-5 should be within reach next year :)

Edit: Done!

After today Contador has moved one place up and is now the rider with 5th most number of days of wearing the leader's jersey in all three GTs.

Interestingly, if Contador wins the Tour this year, he will be at 3 Tours both officially and unofficially. Unofficially, he'll have the grand accomplishment of 3x3.

This being in the more competitive modern era, it would be a serious claim to being the best all time stage racer.

Netserk, I think you had a topic last year mentioning every rider with a top10 in all 3 gts. Can you find it?
Yep, I have it bookmarked ;) Only Nibali will change status after this Tour. Nothing changed after the Giro this year. Quintana will probably join it after the Vuelta.

BTW the criteria is top-10 in all three, with one of them being a podium. Three 10th places ain't enough.

Giro, Tour, Vuelta - Name (non-podium finish in bold) (active riders in bold)

1st, 1st, 1st - Contador
1st, 1st, 1st - Nibali
1st, 1st, 1st - Hinault
1st, 1st, 1st - Merckx
1st, 1st, 1st - Anquetil
1st, 1st, 1st - Gimondi

1st, 1st, 2nd - Indurain
1st, 2nd, 1st - Rominger
1st, 1st, 3rd - Fignon
1st, 3rd, 1st - Menchov
2nd, 3rd, 1st - Fuente
3rd, 1st, 3rd - Evans
2nd, 2nd, 3rd - Van Springel
2nd, 3rd, 3rd - Purito

4th, 1st, 2nd - Sastre
1st, 2nd, 4th - Basso
2nd, 4th, 1st - Olano
1st, 6th, 1st - Battaglin
2nd, 4th, 2nd - Millar
2nd, 4th, 2nd - Galdós
7th, 1st, 1st - Delgado
4th, 2nd, 3rd - Géminiani
3rd, 4th, 2nd - Fornara
1st, 7th, 2nd - Pollentier
4th, 4th, 1st - Jalabert
6th, 3rd, 1st - Vino
5th, 3rd, 2nd - Pérez Francés
4th, 5th, 1st - Lejarreta
1st, 1st, 9th - Nencini
6th, 3rd, 2nd - Leipheimer
4th, 2nd, 5th - Jiménez Muñoz
5th, 5th, 1st - Heras
2nd, 3rd, 7th - Breukink
4th, 3rd, 5th - López Carril
7th, 5th, 1st - Jesús Loroño
8th, 3rd, 2nd - Escartin
8th, 5th, 1st - Herrera
3rd, 10th, 2nd - Fernández Blanco
7th, 1st, 9th - Aimar
1st, 7th, 10th - Moser
Riders who might join this list after the Tour with a podium finish (p) or top-10 (t): König (p) & D. Caruso (p).

Of the riders already on the list, Purito and Basso can improve their record.

Anybody knows what the record is for days in the green jerseys
? I suppose Zabel has the record but Sagan cannot be far off can he? 19+19+20 plus probably close to 20 again this year would bring him close I think..
 
I'm surprised that so little has been made of Contador's attempt on a Grand Slam (albeit split across two seasons). Given his popularity here, I have been expecting constant reference to it.
Has anyone else ever been reigning champ in two GCs and considered to have a decent shot at the third? I can't think of it if it has happened.

Obviously there was no question of 3 within a 12 month period in the days of a Spring Vuelta, but I find the underplaying of what might be at hand a surprising miss by the hype machine.

Merckx and Hinault have both done it in the past, winning Giro and Tour and then the Vuelta the following year. Merckx in 72/73 and Hinault a decade later.
 
Number of days in Green (will be updated):

88* days, Erik Zabel (6)
86 days, Peter Sagan (5)
54 days, Djamolidine Abdoujaparov (3)
51 days, Robbie McEwen (3)
37 days, Thor Hushovd (2)

Coppi won 3 consecutive GT's, Giro and Tour 1952 and Giro 1953. There was no Vuelta in those years

Edit: Merckx won 4 in 72/73, Giro, Tour 1972, and Vuelta, Giro 1973

As you might've guessed, the list isn't complete. I started with counting the days for the winners of the last 25 years, but it's not as easy to find out who was leading which classification after each and every stage past that. If you have some information regarding that you are welcome to contribute.

A very interesting thread.
I forgot about it.
Not sure why it isn't used more to collate interesting data and stats.
 
I have some interesting stats, it's about cycling biggest races, 10 of them (3 GT's, 5 Monuments and WC&OG RR):

Number of wins:
33 - Eddy Merckx
17 - Fausto Coppi
16 - Bernard Hinault
14 - Alfredo Binda
12 - Gino Bartali
11 - Costante Girardengo
Roger De Vlaeminck
10 - Rik Van Looy
Felice Gimondi
Sean Kelly
9 - Jacques Anquetil
8 - Rik Van Steenbergen
Louison Bobet
Francesco Moser
Paolo Bettini
Tom Boonen
7 - Henri Pelissier
Moreno Argentin
Miguel Indurain
Johan Museeuw
Alberto Contador
Fabian Cancellara
Vincenzo Nibali
Chris Froome
6 - Gaetano Belloni
Giovanni Brunero
Fiorenzo Magni
Fred De Bruyne
Tony Rominger
Oscar Freire
Alejandro Valverde
Philippe Gilbert
5 - Jan Raas
Hennie Kuiper
Giuseppe Saronni
Greg Lemond
Laurent Fignon
Gianni Bugno
Michele Bartoli
Peter Sagan


Number of podiums:
45 - Eddy Merckx
26 - Alejandro Valverde
25 - Fausto Coppi
Felice Gimondi
24 - Francesco Moser
23 - Gino Bartali
22 - Roger De Vlaeminck
21 - Bernard Hinault
20 - Alfredo Binda
19 - Costante Girardengo
Rik Van Looy
Raymond Poulidor
Sean Kelly


Top 10 placings:
67 - Eddy Merckx
43 - Felice Gimondi
Francesco Moser
Alejandro Valverde
42 - Raymond Poulidor
Roger De Vlaeminck
Sean Kelly
40 - Gino Bartali
 
I don't really see how these stats are interesting.

The circumstances that these riders raced in are too different:

First WC only in 1927.
First Olympics for pros in 1996.
World Cup/PT/WT now - it is not unreasonable that Coppi/Bartali etc would have raced Liege if they had PT/WT at their time
Different characteristics of races - a punchy finish in Ans vs flat finish before, Lombardia with a more difficult finale instead of a flat finish

Yeah, and some times Mont Ventoux was in the Tour, some times not...

The real critique you could make is that the Cuelta wasn't very prestigious until this century.
