Speaking of the fast-paced sprint train is not always used, "derailment" is also terrible, this year's sixth stage of the West is an example, the ultimate Buani Deli, won the stage champion, Yani only won the third . In addition, Viviani won the group chase championship at this year's European venue championship and won the silver medal in the all-around competition.

If Viviani wins by quantity, then Sagan is superior in quality. The victory of the former world champion of the three-time World Championships in Paris-Roubaix is arguably one of the most valuable wins of the year, plus three Tour de France, Ghent-Weaverheim and the ring. At the Australian single stop, Sagan took his rainbow shirt to a new height this season.

Although Sagan had to pass his rainbow shirt to Valverde because of the design of the track, he was prepared as early as June, and won the Slovak national championship for the sixth time. Anyway, he did not wear the regular team. clothes. Speaking of riding a suit, Sagan also won the sixth Tour de France green shirt, tied Eric Zabel's record.

Although Sagan only won 8 wins, far less than Viviani's 18 wins, but the number of times on the podium can be quite a lot, four runner-ups in the West, three runners in the Tour de France, and others like the Double Sea Race. The only thing that is unfortunate is that he has no revenue in California this year. This is also the first year of the most successful drivers in the history of Central and California.

If these are hard to say, it is a small fight, then this year's Tour of the two consecutive wins can be said to push him to a new level. In the seventh stage of the Tour de France, he beat Gaviria to win, and then defeated Sagan the next day. The great sprint strength of Grouneweigen once made him a strong contender for the green shirt. . It is a pity that in the Alpine trilogy that followed, the flat-road driver with a general climber suffered from the hard work and finally retired in the twelfth stage.

Gaviria's last victory this season was stopped before the Tour de France, and there was no way to make it after that. This may also be due to future uncertainties.
