Evenepoel, Nairo, Roglic ... the best of 2020 to date

The Belgian cyclist is the cyclist with the most victories in 2020 in a classification in which Tadej Pogacar, Nairo Quintana and Primoz Roglic, among others, also shine.

While waiting for the arrival of the great tours such as the Tour de France, Giro d'Italia and Vuelta a España in which many riders will try to quench their thirst for stage victories, many other riders have taken advantage of the few races that have been held before and after confinement to raise their arms and achieve prestigious triumphs.

The most victorious rider so far in 2020 is Remco Evenepoel. The Belgian cyclist has already accumulated 9 wins in 22 days of competition and his records are astonishing. He has won the general classification in the four stage events he has competed (Vuelta a San Juan, Volta ao Algarve, Vuelta a Burgos and Vuelta a Poland) and has won at least one stage in each of them (in Algarve he achieved two partial victories ). In addition, he has nearly half of the 23 wins for the Deceuninck Quick-Step at the start of the season.

Evenepoel is followed by Colombian Jonathan Restrepo, who has six victories in 2020 after the two victories in the Vuelta al Tachira and four in the Vuelta a Ruanda, in both cases before confinement.

After Restrepo, two other great names appear, such as Tadej Pogacar and Nairo Quintana. The Slovenian added four victories before confinement after winning two stages and the general of the Volta a la Comunitat Valenciana and a triumph at the top of Jebel Hafeet in the UAE Tour, and on the return of the competition he managed to beat Primoz Roglic in the Slovenian time trial nationals. For his part, Nairo also started 2020 with great results as shown by his stage and general triumph in the Tour de la Provence and another stage and general in the Tour du Var. Nairo's last victory to date dates from the La Colmiane day in the past Paris-Nice.

One rung lower appears in this ranking of victories appears Primoz Roglic. However, the data from the Slovenian are devastating. Roglic, who had not competed before the lockdown, has added four victories in just 5 days of competition between stages and generals and his other two partial results have been second places. Roglic has won the Slovenian road national and was second in the time trial, while in the Tour de l'Ain he was second in the first stage to finish winning the next two in addition to the general.

In this list at the moment the sprinters have been begging, since only Pascal Ackermann, Fabio Jakobsen and Fernando Gaviria, with four victories each, have managed to stand up to the men of the general classification while waiting to add more partial victories in the volatas of the grand tours, which shows the great struggle that is presented by the massive arrivals this season without a clear dominator.
