Which riders will reach 100 pro wins?


  • Total voters
    79
According to my spreadsheet (which on this parameter is not as thorougly fact-checked as the win stat) this is how the current pros rank in WT wins (including Olympic road races and World Championships road races):

1: Sagan - 72
2: Cavendish - 69
3: Valverde - 60 (includes wins from 2003 and 2004 in future WT races)
4: Roglic - 44
5: Froome - 35
6: Gilbert - 32
6: Sam Bennett - 32
8: Pogacar - 31
9: Ewan - 30
10: Viviani - 27
10: Matthews - 27
12: Alaphilippe - 25
13: Van Aert - 24
13: Porte - 24
15: Boasson Hagen - 23
15: Nibali - 23
15: Quintana - 23
18: Gaviria - 22
19: Démare - 21
20: Degenkolb - 20
20: Simon Yates - 20

So, in conclusion, 100 WT wins is impossible. Unless, maybe, your name is Tadej Pogacar.
Do you also have a breakdown between GC wins, stage wins and one-day wins in your spreadsheet? (and as a curiosity, it'd be fun to include career race days/mileage)
 
It wasn't a vote for your favourite rider poll
The fact that he is my favorite riders doesn't change much. A day or two back there was an article in local media. Due to Govekar winning for the firs time in the elite.


Looking at the stats the most ever wins per season by a Slovenian was 13. Roglič in 2019 and 2021. And Pogačar in 2021 and 2022.

Hence even if numbers do start do drop in the following seasons. There is no special reason he wouldn't reach 100 by the end of his career. Considering he will likely attempt Giro-Vuetla double at some point. A whole lot of opportunities for wins.

We'll see.

As I've explained in my post, Roglič would need around 5 'good' years to reach the 100 mark. Even if he manages to be competitive at 37 which is by no means certain his base level will likely drop more than his peak level so I can't see him getting more than 4-5 wins a season, in fact I think this season already is a step in that direction, he's not doing badly having won Paris-Nice and Dauphiné but has only 4 wins and even if he has been unlucky with injuries the years with 10+ wins are over.

Anyway, did you vote in anyone else besides Roglič?
 
@KZD

Then again he got injured and won nothing at the Tour. Besides the minor fact he being pivotal for JV success.

Point being lets first wait for the season to end. And after to count.

Anyway, did you vote in anyone else besides Roglič?
No.

P.S. If there will ever be a poll for 200. Then i might consider voting for Pogačar.

Don't vote Pogacar for 100 but vote him for 200. Nice
There needs to be some level of respect involved. Considering his age and current shape hence the question if Roglič can reach a 100 is in my opinion a fair question. Assumptions he is now already down to at best 4 to 5 wins per season are in my opinion a bit disrespectful. But OK. We are used to it. Him being a ski jumper and all that. As for asking if Pogačar will win a 100. This is in my opinion not really a respectful question. Hence ask a better question. Worth answering. As otherwise what are we all doing here? Wasting time on silly questions. We can't have that.

Yep. Only Merckx is way above that number (if we count Super Prestige Pernod as a WT predecessor). Cipollini is maybe close, Van Looy, De Vlaeminck and Kelly too, although I think they're slightly below that milestone.

First Cycling do an approximation for older riders (mostly based on the SPP)

Of those you mention:

Merckx 153
Cipollini 94
Van Looy 84
Kelly 75
De Vlaeminck 58

Hinault's 85 seems to be the best of the rest

As do the majority.
I haven't checked, but I don't think so.

EDIT:

Which riders will reach 100 pro wins?


  • Total voters 47
By my count, that is only 5 out of 47 who agree with RR.
