3, rest breakaway or overall win while Demare has 7 with an overall. Though I’m now sure about stage 5 for Hayter in Vuelta a Andalucia. Does anyone know if that was a breakaway or a bunch sprint that broke up the group.
It was the infamous stage of about 20 riders left when Impey deliberately impeded Stannard who was going to win the stage with 50 metres to go which caused them to crash and Hayter who would have finished third was gifted the win - It's ramifications were that Impey has been out injured since the crash, while Stannard got no support from Bike Exchange, which in effect caused him to transfer to Alpecin Fenix.
 
It's beginning to look like we could see a season where no pure sprinters get to double digits (counting all wins).

Of course, Van Aert has 13 wins, but among those are two time trials, a GC, two classics, a three-man sprint versus Remco and Theuns, a puncheur finish and a mountain stage, so he can hardly be categorised as a pure sprinter.

Philipsen, Cavendish and Merlier are all currently on nine wins and Philipsen should be the biggest "threat" based on recent form but it looks like he will only ride Roubaix (which he won't win) and Paris-Tours (where he has a chance).

I don't think it has ever happened before, at least since sprinting became a thing.

Of course Cav wins 10 but not from a bunch sprint keeping this alive xD
