In this week's edition of the Cyclingnews Podcast, brought to you in association with Sportful and Pinarello, we look at another top-ten list and this time it's the cobbled Classics riders from the men's WorldTour era.
Our list is comprised of some of the best cobbled specialists of all-time, let alone the last few years, and as well as discussing their palmarès, we analysed the lasting impressions each rider has made on the sport.
Starting with a long-list of 15, Daniel Benson (Cyclingnews) and Edward Pickering (Procycling) whittled their respective lists to ten riders before crowning their best riders.
The podcast also features exclusive interviews with former Paris-Roubaix winner Mat Hayman – he picks his best cobbled rider, too – and Matteo Trentin on CCC Team’s sponsorship and how he and Greg Van Avermaet will race together later in the year.
Here's our long-list, so feel free to join in and post your order in the comments below.
