The most important thing for the big-name riders in cycling is of course winning races. A few days ago we reported on the active riders with the most wins in their career, this time it's a look at the active riders with the most GC wins.
Courtesy of Cycling Statistics on X (Twitter), it is shown that two of the key players in this year's transfer window, Nairo Quintana and Primoz Roglic lead the way. The Colombian and Slovenian who similarly, both can count the Giro d'Italia and the Vuelta a Espana amongst their career victories, without being able to yet clinch the Tour de France, have a very impressive haul of 20 general classification wins apiece.
Closely following behind is the seven-time Grand Tour winner, Chris Froome with 17 GC wins in his illustrious career. Tadej Pogacar is in fourth overall with 13 GC wins before Remco Evenepoel rounds out the top-5. This is very impressive from the Belgian considering he is only 23 years of age, giving him plenty of time to catch those in front.
Behind them come Geraint Thomas and Jakob Fuglsang (10), Edvald Boasson Hagen, Arnaud Demare, Egan Bernal and Tim Wellens (9), Diego Ulissi, Ivan Sosa and Rui Costa (7), with Adam Yates, Alexey Lutsenko and two-time Tour de France winner Jonas Vingegaard on 6 GC wins respectively.
