Is 8 WT stage wins (not even counting GT stages) really just "a few"? (And only 1 of them was from the new WT races.)

It probably also matters that the WCRR win was historical.

Edit: That said, I think Greg had a better season as well, but if it wasn't for GW, probably not.

Velo d'Or is a farse! They give way too much significance to GT (especially Tour) and WC winners. Van Avermaet this year and Valverde in 2015 are obvious examples.

I know this isn't a "fashion discussion" thread, but I'm honestly not so sure about that white suit...
At least it fitted him properly unlike someone...

Well. You know. Sagan did something which was not done since... ever. :razz:

Nobody has ever won Omloop, E3, G-W and Roubaix in one season either.
No, but five years ago Boonen also won four cobbled races, but two of his were monuments, so there's a comparable and superior recent achievement to that. That can't be said for thrice in a row world champion.

Romain also messed up in that picture by having loud *** white sneakers with that suit. Terrible. Looks like absolute horse manure.
Actually, he's pretty fashionable by today's standards.
nope. he isn't. that guy in the blue suit is.
No. He isn't. The only good thing about him is that the suits fits him well.
Change Cav cardigan with a black blazer and he will look the best. But even that will not be enough. At those ceremonies you're supposed to wear tuxedos. Or, in the worst case, a suit with a tie/bow tie and a handkerchief.

Strictly, in Romain case, a pair of black/brown/burgundy shoes with a fitting waistcoat would be much better. Not even hipsters wear sneakers at those gala's right now. I like that he didn't wear a belt like Bouhanni and Yates. It's making him look taller than he actually is.

I don't like him as a rider, but usually, Fabio Aru is spot on when it comes to outifts.

The Tour presentation is held at around 11 o'clock in the morning. Who wears a tuxedo at that time of day?
