It is and it isn't. He was by far the most dominant sprinter of my lifetime (as a cycling fan), he was almost unbeatable in flat stages for 4-5 years, against mostly much bigger guys, so much that the Tour changed their traditional parcours and his palmares has its own wikipedia page. He looked certain to beat merckx's record, to much consternation among cycling fans, before things went downhill for various reasons.It’s crazy his only 4 tour stage wins away from Merckxs record.
I'm pretty sure Sagan has one as well.I think those two, Valverde, Armstrong, and Merckx are the only ones that do.
How'd I forget Sagan and Cancellara. I'm surprised MvdP already has one. I just looked, Armstrong originally had one but must have lost it with everything. For a time I thought Froome had one too.I'm pretty sure Sagan has one as well.
After looking it up, I can say that on English Wikipedia only Cav, Greipel, Merckx, Valverde, MvdP, Cancellara, Sagan and Marianne Vos seem to have one.
i mean i can create a whole page for your palmares too if you want...How'd I forget Sagan and Cancellara. I'm surprised MvdP already has one. I just looked, Armstrong originally had one but must have lost it with everything. For a time I thought Froome had one too.
I was actually thinking maybe try the first week of Giro and go from there on continuing or withdrawing for Tour or Vuelta. Either way it would be good for him to race at a GT level.If Sam Bennett chooses the Tour, which he probably will, be interesting to see if Cav wants to act as support? Or choose his chances in the Giro?
