So, 2018 is pretty much done I think, and we haven't had this thread yet.
Nibali should be closer to top-10 than Jungels tho, but yeah, those two riders havent done jackshit outside a couple of racedays.tobydawq said:
Pretty much.ecw445 said:How is Valverde winning this? He won 2 vuelta stages and the WC, surely that's not enough to be the top rider
GT stage more important than a monument? Yes of courseBot. Sky_Bot said:Reading some rankings I decided to revise mine (of course is absolutely non-objective ).
First, in such so close year, without any racer with multiple overall WT wins, what should be the base for the ranking? My suggestion:
1. GT wins
2. (if necessary GT podiums)
3. (if necessary GT stage wins)
4. GT multiple podiums
5. (if necessary) GT stage wins
6. Monuments & WCRR wins
7. (if necessary) WT multiple stages overall wins (and if..) WT 1 stage overall wins
8. (if necessary) Monuments & WCRR podiums (and if..) WT 1stage overall wins
9. WT multiple stages overall wins
If we are talking about “Rider of the year” total number of wins (including 2nd and 3rd class of races) shouldn’t be taken into account.
So we have:
1. Froome – (also 3rd at TdF)
2. S. Yates – (because of number of GT stage wins)
4. Dumoulin – (2 x 2nd)
5. Lopez – (2 x 3rd)
6. Valverde – (WCRR + Abu Dhabi + Catalunya)
7-8. Sagan – (P-R + Gent)
Terpstra – (RVV + E3)
9. Nibali (MSR) – but was 2nd at Lombardia
10. Pinot (Lombardia) – stages at Vuelta
11. Jungels (LBL) – yes, the only one WT win…
12-13. Roglic - (Basque +Romandie)
Kwiatkowski - (Tirreno + TdP)
And I don't know how to rank Viviani.
