    Sitting there having my breakfast and into my head pops an obvious one: John Degenkolb.

    Obvious because after an early career haul of Vuelta wins; his emotional win at last year's Tour and his epic, long range sprint win in the Giro.

    Tony Martin - no Giro
    Omar Fraile - only won a TTT at the Vuelta, which doesn't count

    Fabio Aru.

    Can't think there are any gc players missing from that lot. Are we down to TDG type riders?

    Aru yes
    Pinot yes

    The last one actually retired at the end of last season. I hadn't noticed. Daniele Bennati.

    Has to be the breakaway king, doesn't it?

    Thomas De Gendt

    Focuszing723 got him further up. That's all of them now. I thought Bennati was still active, so there were actually only 19.

  • There must be a similar statistic for wearing the leader's Jersey in all 3. I know Cav has, but I wouldn't know how to find the stats for the others

    Rohan Dennis

    TdF 2015, Giro and Vuelta 2018. Is what TTT/ITT do for you.

    Edit. Oh and Vuelta 2017 stage 1 as well.

    I think Cuddles also had all three at some point didn’t he? Certainly TdF and Giro.

    Staying on the theme of this thread I think it has to be current riders (potentially:)
