Cycling Weekly ranks the top 100 male and female professional road riders who made an impression during the 2016 season
Who were the most impressive professional road cyclists in the world during the season? We have attempted to answer that question by compiling a list of Cycling Weekly‘s top 100 Best Road Riders of 2016.
We taken into account several factors, and not necessarily number of victories. The prestige of the races, and the way in which they were ridden have been taken firmly into account.
As with any subjective ranking, it’s all entirely debatable – and we’d like to hear your opinion in the comments section below.
