Caruso's 30 was actually before we started this. I went through the 2014 results during the off season a few years ago.Congratulations Max Kanter!
He does the 2nd best performance since the award was instituted with 29 top-10s, just 1 shy of Caruso's record in 2014.
He also breaks the tradition of 3rd tier sprinters winning on odd years and climbers on even years. For the 2nd year in a row a sprinters wins this competition.
2021 victor Bryan coquard out already
Some early contenders from the TDU are Page and Penhoet with 3, Matthews with 4. Maybe a season too early for Matthews? Can still see him being the quickest one left on a stage with a hard climb.
