    For some strange reason, the ITT and RR Worlds don't give WT points.

    Not that strange: the WT is a series of races for WT teams, the WC does not have WT teams.

    he has had a super year, and deserves to be #1 in the world.
    And he's also no. 1 in the (more logical) World Ranking (which also includes non-WT results, and, most importantly, the Worlds). :cool

    Just read that Dumoulin won the GC for the BinckBank / Eneco / Tour of Benelux. BTW - anchoring memories with the "Benelux" label has been helpful. "Eneco", of course, gives me a little bit of "place", but "Benelux" gives me proper sense of what and where.

    I'm a bit surprised the Dumoulin won the overall. And Sagan didn't. I've been cheering Dumoulin as we move forward, but this win awakens my cupidity - and I have to think this is a good omen for Dumoulin's chances in future GT's.

    You know, it's funny/ironic isn't it? How some riders get the GT label, and never produce - and then another rider produces and never gets the label!
