I think the UK are underrated here. They have strong single day riders and only need a single stage race win.
Slovenia is good enough to get everything.
Belgium has the capability but needs more stage racers.
Really depends on schedules more than anything.
I expected that response. Not going to argue with you on that one but it is just a different reading of biggest and trying to strike a balance between classics and stage races.I'll look at it later.
But I definitely don't think there's consensus that the one-week races are bigger than tier 2 classics like Strade, Amstel, GW, E3, Omloop and Flèche.
In essence I consider there to be consensus about what the biggest one-day races and the biggest stace races are. Similarly to your point the Tour de France blows any monument out of the water.
