We will immediately tell you who the rider in question is: Greg Van Avermaet (33). How he on 1? By last year, the most UCI points in the WorldTour one day races to collect the entire platoon. Van Avermaet amounted to 1.915 points, just one point more than Michael Matthews. Jasper Stuyven (1.823), Oliver Naesen (1.817) and Peter Sagan (eur 1,784) are also in the top five. But that knew Of the Team so all not. “I know the rankings are not,” he says. “Depends?”
No. It is the first time that the UCI this classification format. The ranking is a by-product of the upcoming reforms in the cycling world. The UCI held in september 2018 the ‘Classics Series’ above the baptismal font: in the longer term, that a circuit be that the twenty largest and most beautiful (semi)classics under one umbrella together. The new One Day Race-classification must be the most regular and best rider therein indicate.
From the Team: “A kind of world cup? Then I'm a fan. Especially if they have a leader's jersey would reach out for it. I see Museeuw and Van Petegem is still driving that white wereldbekertrui. I was jealous as a young guy, I wanted that too.”
