I’ve been maintaining a spreadsheet tracking the first wins of the year for the 18 WorldTour and 25 Professional Continental Teams.

I was going to try to attach a couple of images/screenshots showing the data sorted in a couple of different ways, but it's not letting me upload attachments, oh well.

As of this, the 49th day of the year, 21 of the 43 teams I’m tracking, or just short of half, have won a race in 2019. That’s 15 of 18 WorldTour teams and 6 of 25 Pro Continental teams. The WorldTour teams yet to achieve a victory remain AG2R La Mondiale, Bahrain Merida, and Team Sunweb. The six Pro Continental teams that have achieved victories so far are: Direct Energie (5 wins); Cofidis, Solutions Crédits (4 wins); Vital Concept – B&B Hotels (3 wins); Androni Giocattoli - Sidermec (2 wins); Neri Sottoli - Selle Italia - KTM (1 win); and Team Arkéa Samsic (1 win).

The 21 teams have won 71 races.
 
Wow, I'm actually still in with a chance! I never predict anything correctly in this sport!

Which, of course, means that some unsung rider from Team Sunweb (my choice) will go crazy in the Algarve tomorrow and solo to a legendary win.

Well, Hagen already made sure to take DD out of this.
I just think Red Rick thinks the French one day races are shitsmall races like Cav used to call them.

Edit: Maybe not Paris-Roubaix.
I'd rather win the Tro-Bro-Léon, GP Marseillaise or the Tour du Finistre over a stage in the tour of turkey or in the UAE tour.
I think there are just too many good riders in the UAE Tour for me to agree with that.

Oh there are good riders, but those races have a history and a crowd.

This. And I think it's a great thing that famous riders like Bardet and Pinot honor these smaller races. That's what keeps them alive, as they are usually organized and financed by enthusiastic local volunteers, and not by autocratic regimes. I have far more respect for riders doing 1.1 races as for those riding in Dubai or for Bahrain.
