Cycling is one of the most difficult sports in the world, which makes it very attractive. In recent years, it has become more and more popular, and many people even gamble on it. Therefore, a lot of bookmakers offer tempting VIP codes, such as the one provided by this review of the Pinnacle Sports online.
If you choose to place a bet on cycling, it’s good to know who the best cyclists in the world are — they will have the highest chances of winning. Of course, sometimes an underdog will break away from the peloton and win a race, but in the majority of cases, big wins are reserved for the hot shots.
Here is our list of four best cyclists in the world in 2019.
Peter Sagan is, according to many, the best cyclist ever to compete in the sport. He was born in 1990, which makes him only 29 years old — that is not much in this sport. He still has lots of years left to compete professionally. Sagan switched to road cycling in 2008, and before that he raced mountain bikes and cyclo-cross bikes.
At the moment, he is racing for the team Bora-Hansgrohe and is one of the contenders for the three Grand Tours in 2019. His former achievements and victories include three World Championships, two Paris-Nice stages, a European Championship, seven Tirreno-Adriatico stages, and many more.
Apart from that, he is well-liked by fans because of his jolly personality and a relaxed attitude.
A lot can be said about Christopher Clive Froome by mentioning the fact that he has received the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (OBE) for his great contributions to sports. As you can guess, he is a British professional road cyclist who rides for Team Sky at the moment. Chris Froome is considered to be the best of the best because he is one of the rare riders who managed to win all three Grand Tour races.
But he did not win them just once. Froome won Tour de France four times, and Giro d’Italia and Vuelta a Espana one time each. He also won medals in the Olympics and World Championships. His 2018 season was good, but it wasn’t spectacular. Therefore, a lot is expected from him in 2019 — he will try to regain his former glory.
Geraint Thomas is another British cyclist who has received an OBE thanks to his extraordinary sports achievements. He is a Welsh cyclist who currently rides for Team Sky, just like Chris Froome. He is unique because he competes both on the road and on track, which gives him a powerful set of skills.
During his professional career, he won two Olympic gold medals, three World Championships, and one Tour de France.
Tom Dumoulin is a Dutch professional road cyclist. At the moment he rides for Team Sunweb and is one of the cyclists expected to have enough leg power to win one of the Grand Tours in 2019. He is best known for his climbing and time-trialling abilities, which has brought him a win at Giro d’Italia in 2017. He won the second place in 2016 Tour de France, ranking just behind Chris Froome.
