GRAND TOUR CON­SIS­TENCY

Procycling - - THE NUMBERS -

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.
