2 1ST CEN­TURY WINS

Procycling - - Gp Quebec & Montereal -

Sky have un­doubt­edly been the most suc­cess­ful grand tour team in the world this year, with two wins out of three. But for con­sis­tency of re­sults, Sun­web have en­joyed a bet­ter sea­son than the Bri­tish team. We’ve added up the po­si­tions of each WorldTour team’s high­est-placed rider in each of the three grand tours and found Sun­web just ahead of Sky. Tom Du­moulin’s win in the Giro, along with War­ren Bar­guil’s 10th at the Tour and fourth for Wilco Kel­der­man at the Vuelta might not match Chris Froome’s wins in France and Spain, but Sky en­dured a poor Giro, with Mikel Landa their high­est fin­isher in 17th place. Best of the rest: Can­non­dale, then Trek, each with a top 10 in all three races. FDJ take the GC wooden spoon, de­spite Thibaut Pinot’s bright fourth place in the Giro.
