Great first Grand Tour stage victory for Brit rider Steve Cummings today. May as well c+p this as i just posted on another forum where we were discussing recent British stage wins...
5th different British Grand Tour stage winner in 2012. Cav/Brad/Froome/Millar/Cummings.
From 2000 to 2007, we had (David Millar) 7 wins in 8 years. In 2008, 6 wins in 2 tours in one year for Cav.
2009/10/11/12 - At least one win at each Grand Tour. 14 consecutive tours now with a Brit stage winner.
Last 5 years stage wins:
Cavendish - 36
D. Millar - 3
Wiggins - 3
Froome - 2
Cummings - 1
Total: 45. Average 3 stage wins per tour. Cav with 36/45 = 80% of total GT stage wins.
