Heckle? I'm not aggressive nor offensive, I point out how tiring and lame the countless strawmen of 'detractors' are. As if the world is united in hating him and no one ever gives him credit.Rest assured I don't follow anyone's posts enough to know why you seem triggered by my comments, but do heckle on!

Sure but we don't have relaible kermesse records for older riders, and ultiamtely we can only compare across similar/same races.You also can't compare their victories like that. Schotte and Aerts, for instance, have won many smaller Belgian races which were worth a lot more to them back then.
Sure, but I don't think it tells you that much. If these riders had been riding today, they would probably have had more pro wins than that.Sure but we don't have relaible kermesse records for older riders, and ultiamtely we can only compare across similar/same races.
Also, I would love to get a good valuation system to rate riders that does an excellent job of rating the value of a win.
I wsa jsut posting what appears to be the win totals in races that currently count as pro wins.
no. stick with the plan as is.
With the cobles stage in the tour and all the media attention in Belgium? No way, in all scenario's he should stick to the initial plan and do the vuelta. Otherwise they make the same error as last year.
Sometimes a good result in Dauphine/Suisse can also mean the rider has peaked too early and will burn out during the Tour. But if he could win a few stages before then it obviously wouldn't be bad for the team.
