It seems fitting that he has this record.Most GT stages without winning any (not including TTTs) is Haimar Zubeldia with 573.
Spain is on the way to break that record
These posts didn't age so well.Plot-twist; it's Dumoulin who wins.
Remco won, so there will be an active GT winner from one of those countries for the next 15 years unless something happens to him(again).After this season, none of France, Spain, Italy, Belgium and the Netherlands will have an active GT winner (unless a rider from one of those countries wins the Vuelta, of course).
I don't think he can match Ganna and win 5 GT TTs in the coming nine months, though.Tobias Foss is the first rider since Michael Rogers to be World ITT Champion without having won previously a ITT in cycling top tier.
And is the first rider ever, since the creation of the jersey, to be World Champion without a previous win in any TT in a stage race (not considering national championships).
And, together with Rogers and also Ganna, I think they are the only 3 guys to win the jersey without a previous win in a GT time trial.
