Colombia, EF Education First Drapac presented by Cannondale After back-to-back runner-up spots in the 2013 and 2014 Giros, Rigoberto Uran’s unspectacular Grand Tour results during the next couple of seasons almost made one dismiss him as a main contender. But in 2017, the EF Education First Drapac man was back to his finest, earning his greatest Grand Tour accomplishment by coming second to Froome. His stage win while stuck in his bike’s 53 x 11 gear is the stuff of legends. Uran tends to follow attacks instead of launching them, but it’s an effective strategy, especially with his sharp time trialling. Still, the Colombian has never won a stage race in his professional career. He placed third in the Oro y Paz and 10th in Tirreno-adriatico.
