edited July 2019 in Pro race
By my reckoning (ie by looking it up on Wikipedia) 56 (correction 55) riders have won a race (at any level including nationals) or led/won a classification racing for Ineos/Sky
How many can you all name?

“New York has the haircuts, London has the trousers, but Belfast has the reason!
de la Cruz
Downing (first British win)
Sutton - KBK
Henderson - their first Tour Down under
Dibben - TT in California
Rogers - I think he won California
Rowe - Tour of Britain stage
Lawless - Tour of Yorkshire
Sivakov - Alps
Tao GH - Alps stages
Cummings - some pre-season in Spain. Beat Contador
Dowsett - Bayern Rundfart
Hayman - a late season race in France
Gerrans - Tour of Denmark
Sosa - a jersey at Tour of Colombia
Halverson - TdUnder stage
Doull - TdUnder stage
Mrs Cows and I have brought it up to 39
David Lopez - Eneco stage - I had to check on Wiki for that one, I thought he'd won in a lesser race
Sivitsov - Belarus TT
TWH - I hope your not counting TTT wins. That will be a problem
You're missing some riders who've won legit races you really should get
Some well known riders who've won something several rungs below chipper
There are a couple of '**** off you're not counting that'
1 very new guy
1 from the original line up (who won his national title)
Also it's 55 - I've Sivakov twice
So 12 to get
Ganna? He's new and won something this season. I remember he had the leader's jersey.
Italian TT champion
Didn't Svitsov ride for Sky? He must have won something...
Rich has him
And now I remember Nordhaug - Tour of Yorkshire and one of the Canadian races
Edit: Now I see Mrs Cow had him. :oops:
2nd Edit: Another one and I can't see him above. He's a really big cheese. EF and he lost 1'-40" on stage 10, anyone? :P
3rd Edit. A big miss, cos he won a number of races for Sky: Danny van Poppel.
I reckon that's me done.
Danny VP 47
(Some of these are so minor they don't even make it onto the rides wiki page )
German winner of something called Rund um Sebnitz and the mountain jersey of the Herald Sun Tour
Irish rider who led the youth classification of the Route d'Occitanie
English winner of East Yorkshire Classic Roadrace who won't be our next PM
Serving a doping ban won a stage of the Tour of Luxembourg
Winner of the Bischofhofen Criterium and the bestest mate a sprinter could have
Winner of the Cima Coppi 2014 and a stage of Coppi e Bartali
Then again classification jerseys. He probably won a youth jersey at some point
Wisniowski - feel like he did something in a lesser race of the classics season?
Did Knees win some odd race somewhere once upon a time!?
Yup Uran - stage 10 of the 2013 Giro
The last one had a national title as his only win with Sky
Going by the standard of some of these 'wins' I'll say Phil Deignan once beat Lizzie in a race to the coffee shop.
His only win was the Czech TT title.
They have not won as many as one would think.
How the bejesus and the baby orphans did I forget him!
What did Bernie win for Sky?
