Which riders will reach 100 pro wins?

Someone who shouldn't be overlooked for this milestone is Alexander Kristoff. He is currently on 91 pro wins (edit: 92 now) and he will at least be riding next year as well. He already has 3 wins this season so he still have the capacity to win pro races.
Yeah, it's quite astonishing how he has turned the tables the last few weeks.

10 wins in total between 2020 and 2023 didn't really suggest he'd have it in him but now it suddenly again looks like a glaring omission from the list.

One important factor this season I believe is Tord Gudmestad. He has done some cracking lead outs for him this year. Gudmestad seems to have a very strong sprinting endurance as well. Today he held on and finished 5th after leading Kristoff out.
 
Yeah, because he obstructed half the field from sprinting... but besides today he's been really solid
Don't know what sprint you watched but I can't see any obstruction. If some riders were expecting someone in front of them to just give up and go to the side then that's their fault but when someone is sprinting in front of you you need to get past then and not expect them to make way for you.

He clearly goes right back in behind Kristoff, thus obstructing all the other sprinters. I can't really see how that's debatable.

Kristoff would probably have won anyway but not even Alpecin have made such egregious moves yet.

He continues to sprint after his lead-out and gets 5th. I don't have a problem with a team where more than one rider sprints at the finish.

There's nothing unusual in taking the wheel of a rider who passes you, so I don't see how that's "egregious" by your description of it.

I might have to rewatch again but doesn't he go to the left side of Kristoff's back wheel after having been passed by himon Kristoff's right side?

It's probably a bit hard to see exactly from a head-on shot.

The only unusual thing is that he keeps sprinting even after Kristoff passes him but because he keeps sprinting he should be treated like any other person in the sprint and as such I don't see him doing anything any other sprinter wouldn't do.
