Win a TdF Stage & Yellow or A Classics Monument?

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

Last Sunday while enjoying a loop around Loch Katrine with Alex Mclean, he asked me a question which I found quite fun & revealing to answer!

Given the recent exploit of Julian Alaphilippe in the Tour & Winning the Milan-San Remo race earlier on the year!

So, the question is - If you were a Pro Rider:

"Would you rather Win a Tour de France stage & get the Yellow (for a day or 2, not the overall in Paris, mind) or

A Classics Monument (Milan- San Remo, Flanders, Paris Roubaix, LBL or Tour of Lombardi) ?"

 

I know which one Martin Mulholland would rather want, so he doesn't have to answer! ;-)

Just to get the ball rolling - I'm with Martin, I rather win a Monument, but it has to be the Ronde or Hell of the North ....... the cobble ones obviously! icon_rolling_smile

What's your thoughts?

Cheers

Chung

Monument. There are only 5 in any given year and the chances are history will remember those winners. A stage win and a day or so in yellow are imo less prestigious.

If it’s a choice between a grand tour and a monument, then the grand tour win for me.
