Speaking of the French drought: they still haven't had a rider place higher than third on any stage this Tour.Which basically all amounts to yet another way of rubbing France's nose in it over their drought...
Well, if that means a mass sprint is 11 riders or more on same time, and that you're counting as a solo winner if you don't have the same time as number 2, then Pogacar qualifies.I recall that Thor Hushovd won Tour de France stage:
I count top 2 to 10 riders with the same time as a small group.
- Finishing solo (2011 Lourdes)
- From the small group (2002 Bourg-en-Bresse, 2010 Arenberg Porte du Hainaut, 2011 Gap)
- From the mass sprint (2004 Quimper, 2006 Champs-Elysees, 2007 Joigny, 2008 Saint-Brieuc, 2009 Barcelona)
- Time trial (2006 Strasbourg)
How many others have had the same? WvA currently doesn't have small group win. (5 mass sprints, 2 solos, 1 TT)
Richie Porte - 6th, 7th and 6th in consecutive stages to Alpe d'Huez. He climbed it on one other occasion where he missed the top 10.Simon Geschke has now finished 6th, 7th and 9th on stage finishes in Mende. Has anyone else achieved three results in the lower half of the top 10 in the same town without getting better results as well?
Countries that have never won a grand tour stage even though grand tour stage winners have been born there.
Malta - David Millar
Morocco - Richard Virenque
Kenya - Chris Froome
Japan - Chris Horner
if you include team time trial winners
Finland - Charly Wegelius
