Gotti won 5 UCI wins: two Giro stages and two Giro GCs as well as a stage in the Volta a Catalunya.

Both PCS and FirstCycling also says he won the 1999 GP Nobili Rubinetterie. PCS list it as having been a 1.1 race, but FC says it was national event. However Wikipedia claims Salvatore Commesso won it.

Anyone here who watched the race and can confirm the actual result?
On the archived pages of the organiser you can read that in 1999 the GP Nobili was the Italian Championships in Arona, won by Salvatore Commesso.

I guess PCS and FC copied the wrong info.

Marianne Vos has ridden 11 Giri and won at least one stage in each of them.

Miguel Indurain never won a Vuelta stage. Neither did Greg LeMond

Bernard Hinault never finished outside the podium in a GT he finished, and he lead the race at some point in all those he rode. He never won Paris-Nice.

Eddy Merckx won pretty much everything except for Paris-Tours. Both he and Hinault had a 6th place as their best result in that race.

Freddy Maertens never won a monument.

Not only did Jaan Kirsipuu never finish a GT in 15 starts, he never even made it to the third week of one.

The runner-up in the Tour de France have had a given name starting with J 23 times. J first names are also most common among thrid place finishers with 19.
The race has been won by someone with a given name starting with L 20 (or13) times. The 2000 and 2001 Tours are the only ones to have had an L winner, a J runner-up and a J in third place.
I know the calendar was different that time with the placement of the Vuelta but very surprised that as a Spaniard Indurain showed such a lack of interest in his home Grand Tour.

Kudos also to @Mosul for that remarkable German Champs Elysee stage stat

So Degenkolb and Walscheid have the whole pressure on their shoulders to keep the streak going this year, as the other viable option (Krieger) should be on team duties in that stage.

After today's performance Jonas Vingegaard is en route to be the first rider of the host country of the 1st stage of the Tour to win the overall in 30 years, since Miguel Indurain in 1992.
Not that bizarre a statistic given that I'm pretty sure the only Tour winners since to race a GD in the country they represent are Froome and Thomas in 2014.
 
Wout Van Aert achieved the same number of TDF second place stage finishes in the first three days of this year's tour as Mark Cavendish has had in his entire life.

Since the fall of the Berlin wall in 1989 there has always been at least one German rider finishing in the top 10 of the Champs-Elysees stage. That's 32 consecutive years with 14 different riders.
Degenkolb top 10 confirmed

If 2014 counts for Thomas, 2007 does too for Wiggins.
But the first winner to be born in the country of the GD since Wiggins in 2012.
Which basically all amounts to yet another way of rubbing France's nose in it over their drought...
