Best Tour de France Cyclists of the 21st Century

Best cyclists in the 21st century only based on the tour. For example Fabian Cancellara would not count because he is a classics specialist.

The Top Ten

1 Andy Schleck

The greatest climber the tour de france will see

2 Frank Schleck
3 Tejay van Garderen
4 Levi Leipheimer
5 Andrew Talansky
6 Alberto Contador

Just wonder why has nobody put his name in the list before I did! He's definitely the best Cyclist of 21st century! He is the best climber ever No one can attacks as well and brutally as he does!

7 Nairo Quintana

He's very good at climbing especially when he gained a minute on froomie in the tour d' France - jmepa123

8 Christopher Froome

He is the winner of Tour de France in 2013 and 2015.

The Best All-Rounder

9 Christian Vande Velde
10 Lance Armstrong Lance Edward Armstrong is a former American professional road racing cyclist. At age 16, Armstrong began competing as a triathlete and was a national sprint-course triathlon champion in 1989 and 1990.

I added this. He was still an incredible cyclist no matter how many drugs he took or how much loath him - jmepa1234

The Contenders

11 Andreas Kloden
12 Bauke Mollema

This list is confusing me. Surely froomie is better than a lot of these riders and still counts as a 21th century tour d' France rider - jmepa123

13 Ryder Hesjedal
14 Vincenzo Nibali
15 Mark Cavendish
16 Geraint Thomas
17 Peter Sagan
