GRAND TOUR CONSISTENCY
There’s no doubting Team Sky had the most spectacular year as far as wins go in the big stage races, winning the Giro and Tour. However, they’re not the most consistent team in grand tours. Their highest placing in the Vuelta was only 15th, with David de la Cruz. When you add up the placings of each team’s highest GC position in the three grand tours, Sunweb were more consistent, as were LottoNL!Jumbo and Movistar. Sunweb’s two second places at the Giro and Tour and 10th at the Vuelta) give them 14 points, the best of all the teams.
