I think Paret-Peintre is fine but not Laporte or Roglic. Then Alaphilippe and Mathieu should count for the last two days but those were puncheur finishes, not sprints.Probably need to set some rough boundaries on two points: how uphill is too uphill? how small a reduced bunch is too reduced?
Its probably not going to have too much impact on the upper reaches of the table, but it‘s best to try for some kind of consistency. One issue is that with low profile races there can be a bit of guessing from a results sheet. So maybe Laporte or Paret-Peintre or some other French guys shouldn’t be in?
Viviani had 8 wins in the 2nd half of his last year at Sky, including Hamburg and Bretagne Classic. He didn't ride any GT that year, so a little difficult to measure.[Bennett] was much, much better the year before he moved to QS than say Viviani was the year before he went there.
9 wins ( 3 WT) versus 13 wins (11 WT). I don’t think it’s all that difficult. Viviani was good, I’m not implying that he’s just the creation of Quickstep. They signed him because he was already good. But he wasn’t in the best sprinter in the world conversation before he moved to QS, Bennett was. I admit though that it’s a lot easier to remember how a sprinter was regarded three seasons ago than five seasons ago, so maybe I’m not giving his Elia his due.Viviani had 8 wins in the 2nd half of his last year at Sky, including Hamburg and Bretagne Classic.

At least Viviani and Gaviria have the excuse that they are both coming back from serious health issues. Ackermann and Demare also must be under serious pressure to deliver and they don’t have that excuse.If Vivaini and Gaviria are the best paid sprinters in the Pelton.... These guys should be looking for a pay rise.
