Eight World Tour teams have a win so far thia year - which of the other ten will be last to win?

A win is a UCI race ranked .1 or above - no National champs or minor jerseys

Perennial challengers EF Education surprisingly knocked out early this year.

  • Dimension Data :-( They normally get an early win with Cav in the Middle East, but maybe not this time around.
    He's finished, isn't he?

    The Vikings are coming!
  • Dimension Data are a bit bobbins aren't they? There's a half decent classics team there but you certainly wouldn't have any of their riders as favourites for those races.
  • Actually, I just remembered that DD signed Valgren, who is a decent bet for a win in the spring classics. Taking OHN and Amstel last year was superb, very strong, very versatile.

    OK.
    Didn't realize GC counted, not having participated.

    Very easy to do.
    Having watched Valencia and now watching Gorka in Provence, today, they are logged into the memory bank.
    I'm sure I'll get caught out by a few along the way, though.
