Remember last year, when Alexander Kristoff (Katusha) seemed to win every race he entered? Well, it’s happening again in 2016.
Quite remarkably, in a stat pointed out by the kings of stats at Pro Cycling Stats, Kristoff has won the exact same stages at the same races as he did in 2015.
If this continues, and there’s no reason why it cant, you’d be well advised to place bets on him winning the Tour of Flanders and Scheldeprijs again.
The more niche bet would be to back him on stage one of Paris-Nice, which will be his next win, mark my words.
Last year Kristoff put together one of the best seasons in recent history, winning stage races, one day races and a Monument, so it’s a little spooky to see him starting to do the exact same things again.
