The choice of the best performance rating of cyclists

In the preparation of reports and lists should be a line drawn somewhere, a top ten than the obvious, because a place in the top ten, which is where a cyclist ranking in any case fights. But there are also many ranking cyclists who have fought hard for a place in the top ten, but it just doesn’t do it.

Giro d’Italia

The tour of Italy, officially called the Giro d’Italia in May every year, sometimes driven into early June. The round is considered heavy and mountain stages are technically difficult. I performed the 21 century the Dutch standings cyclists as well as in 2010, 2000-2009 is in the top 25 no Dutch name. This is obviously a result of the fact that not every year ranking Dutch cyclists competed in the Giro. The cyclists who did very well in 2010 are Steven Kruijswijk and Wilco Kelderman, with selections in the top 10. In addition, in the past, in the 20th earned by Erik Breukink, namely a second and a third in the final standings’s podium places. Additional facts about the Tour of Italy is that it will be launched in 2016 on May 6 in the Netherlands Apeldoorn.

The tour de France

The mother of the great cycling, the Tour de France. Heavy Alpine and Pyrenees stages, with violent winds outside battles on the plains in Normandy or Brittany, or almost a surplace just before the line stop because a driver did not want to take over the other, the Tour de France has it all. Participants in the Tour de France, held every year in July, is the strongest of the three major cycling tours. When a cyclist in the Tour standings among the top ten in the general classification is then finished a very good performance put. A podium place in the top three is quite exceptional performance, this is achieved in the past by Erik Breukink, Steven Rooks, Johan van der Velde, Joop Zoetemelk, Hennie Kuiper and Jan Janssen.
In the 21st century the podium has not yet been achieved, but many top 10 lists. Dutch performance was best in the 21st century, the first of Michael Boogerd and from 2010 was won by Robert Gesink, Laurens ten Dam and Bauke Mollema. Particularly good results were ninth place in 2014 with Laurens ten Dam, which has not had a leading role in the Tour. It is noteworthy that since 2013 the number of high-rating of the Dutch has clearly increased. Another striking feature is the transition from sixth to fourth place by Robert Gesink in 2010, after non-Dutch cyclists afterwards in the general classification was deleted.
