Pro Peloton Statistics

Postby moosterbounce » Tue Jun 05, 2007 11:56 pm

Here are the nationality figures of the MENS peloton as quoted from the Autumn issue of Ride Cycling Review magazine:

Protour - 20 squads, 557 riders, 39 nations.

The nations with the most riders are:

99 - France
84 - Spain
78 - Italy
53 - Belgium
42 - Germany
32 - Netherlands
25 - Australia :D
19 - Switzerland
14 - Denmark
14 - US :shock:
12 - Russia
11 - Kazakhstan

The oldest dude is 39 (Laurent Brochard AG2R)
Youngest dude is 21 in November (Aussie Matt Goss CSC)
Average age 27.8
There are 8 sets of brothers!!

I found this really interesting. Certainly expected more from the US though...

The Brits are at the Velodrome
If the R-1 rule is broken, what happens to N+1?

I'm sure someone with time on their hands will work out a % of total population - would make Aus look really good compared to the US. Me? I've got real work to do :(

Bit scarey that the oldest guy was 39...there is hope yet for some of you blokes :wink:

What's the situation with women's road pro circuit? It's a little one sided isn't it?

I only have access to the magazines...not the teams themselves so can't tell you. :wink:

I reckon we do pretty well though.

A heck of a lot less exposure. A parallel women's TdF would have been interesting.

Two Brits are going to be fighting it out at the first time trial in London at the start of the TdF. It's odd to even think of starting there, let alone the prospect of seeing British names at the top of the field...
I wonder how the Basque guys feel about being included under Spain. :lol: :lol:

Bring on the Tour! Giro is done, some hearts were broken in the freezing mountains, and the Dauphine is underway...

It may have some correlation to their lack of military victories. :wink:

Napoleon didn't do too badly actually.

Wasn't Napoleon Corsican?
They don't think they're French :wink:

You're right, he wasn't French.

The French did have a draw in the French revolution.

Oops, and I just deleted it without reading the last post in the thread :oops:

Sorry.

The ability of guests to post has been fixed too ... I hope - if members have a problem, give a yell. I was messing with things last night and messed up this forum but messed up the un-messing :oops:
