I don't like that stat "29 (!) top 10 in 40 starts". Tbh nobody cares about top-tens.
As a WorldTour team, it must be your goal to place in the top-10 in every race. Exceptions can be made for a new team in the biggest WT races, but on the lower rungs, not getting that top-10 with a WT squad is, frankly put, failure.

It has taken the team only six years to move from 'new upstart Conti team with riders from non-traditional nations' to 'WorldTour team' ... but some people's expectations are still on the level of 'ooh, we're racing with the Quicksteps and Lottos now, how exciting everything is, and we even have someone left for the sprint, marvellous'. :shh
