Pretty surprised at how low in the list the current guys are especially Valverde.
Also great to see Seán up in the top 10the reason why me and so many in Ireland love cycling
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 Milan-San Remo didn't have a Poggio, and Cipressa, and Le Manie..., Trouee d'Arenberg became a part of Paris-Roubaix only in 1968, Koppenberg is introduced in 1976, I'm missing your point a bit... :confused_old:
