If you were to be a top level pro cyclist, which would you rather be......a sprinter, a climber, or a TT'er? and why?
It seems like the climbers have the edge in the grand tours, the TT'ers get individual glory, but the sprinters have the opportunities to win in the tours, the classics, and most everything in between. For me, I'd like to be a top level sprinter.
Sprinters have more wins, and that means they get on the podium more often which = more kisses from those hot podium girls oh, and they don't look like walking skeletons with their shirts off.
And if a sprinter drops out of a grand tour its not a big deal, but if a GC guy drops out, he's considered a failure/disappointment.
