The Podium Slam

Page 10 - Get up to date with the latest news, scores & standings from the Cycling News Community.
It doesn't really fit the title of the thread or the discussion so far, but on the back of Dan Martin now having not only a stage win in all three GTs, but also a top ten in each, I wondered who would be in his category here: top ten in all three, but no podium (by the definition here: I would prefer to go by results, not ceremonies for Mollema and van den Broeck).

Going back to 1970, I am surprised at how few there seem to be (though I may have missed some)
5,5,4 Thurau
5,6,3 Mollema
7,3,8 Van den Broeck
5,7,6 Totschnig
5, 8,8 Fuchs
10,6,4 Martin
6,7,9 Konig
8,9,8 Serrano

Did I miss anyone?
Eduardo Chozas 6,8,6
 
UPDATE!
Caparaz joins the elite list of riders with a podium in each GT.
Kelderman also deserves a mention in the third tier, having a podium in the Giro and top10 results in the Tour and Vuelta.

I'm using @Netserk culprit so please @tobydawq don't kill me. I also added a few names (thanks @Samu Cuenca). As always, if you spot any mistake just tell me.

Van Impe's result should be listed as 4th, 1st, 5th and De Muynck's as 1st, 4th, 7th. I was ranking the GTs based on prestige and not their current calendar slots, which is what I personally feel is the right way to do it, since that has remained unchanged for longer/forever ;)

Mollema and Van Den Broeck are missing in the third Tier, right? Bauke was officially granted 3rd at 2011 Vuelta. Unless you are only going by records achieved on the road and not awarded following suspensions.

Why is 2nd, 3rd, 2nd (Rodríguez ) or rated higher than 7th, 1st, 1st (Delgado)? Or why is 2nd, 4th, 2nd (Millar) rated higher than 7th, 1st, 9th (Aimar). It makes no sense imo. First places must always be rated higher than podium or top10. This is professional sports, it's about winning, not so many people care about a 5th of 7th place.

This thread is literally named the podium slam.
 
I guess it's down to adding up best places:
Rodriguez: 2+3+2 =7
Delgado: 7+1+1=9

Anyways i think there is room for discussion here. Just from the placings, I would surely place Delgado over Rodriguez, but I would conclude that Aimar got the biggest achievement (winning Le Tour) but in overall terms was a lesser rider than Millar.

I think the list is cleaner that way, because it shows who came closest to winning (or podiuming) all three GTs. I don't think it could be considered really a value judgement of who had better careers.

It's not a ranking, it's a list.
 
That's true, but than why is there a list of people not being on the podium? Because if it is about podiums we can delete the whole last part of the list.
Yeah, well, I think the thread evolved a bit. You still have to have been on one podium to get on the list, though.

It could be interesting to have all riders who have been top 10 in all GT's on it but I guess that would be a Herculean task to complete that.

I agree this list is not a judgement value about who had a better career. This list says absolutely nothing about someone's career.

I only asked the question, because there's a kind of logical ranking in this list. Otherwise you can make it on alphabetical order.
