You said it yourself, the Giro was the superior race in 2022 , because Landa (also Vincenzo 'lo squalo' Nibali) was providing attacks, this is as good as stage racing gets.I guess perhaps the fact the top 2 were so significantly better than the rest hurts it for some, but I feel it's nitpicking to complain about the GC battle between Vingegaard and Pogačar. I suppose maybe the fact there was no real battle for the podium meant there was only really the two riders that had any real relevance to it? There was a clear gulf from the top 2 to Thomas, but he was also clearly the next best in the race thus meaning there was no battle for third and so everybody else was rendered an afterthought; only all Thomas really could do was hang on to them a bit longer than the rest, kind of the reverse problem to the Giro where again the top 3 were the clear best 3 riders in the race, but whereas in the Tour the top 2 absolutely went tooth and nail at each other, in the Giro the only one that was providing any attacks was Landa, and he was clearly the 3rd strongest of them.
Even for those that weren't so enamoured of the Tour this year, though, I can't really countenance how they can justify voting for either the Giro or Vuelta as being a superior race in 2022.
I don't think Giro was better than TDF in terms of racing, just equal. But TDF after the stage 11 (very good stage) felt like some laughable commercial thermonuclear circus. It didn't feel like meaningful sport. I watched the TDF and thought how embarrassing it was to be a cycling fan.
Vuelta dull this year with both racing and scenery. Not even much to comment on.
Stages 16 &17 of Giro had me glued to racing just as stage 11 of the tdf, and the Giro felt a bit more meaningful, there was a soul till the last stage. Fans were more invested in the riders at the giro. It was no the best Giro of course but still I liked it
