Some help please...
 
Three questions...

-do stage wins in stage races count toward a riders career victories list? example --- Eddie Merckx has 525 career road racing wins, are his Tour de France stage wins part of that total?

-which, if any, of the Monuments favor sprinters, or at least give sprinters a decent shot?

-do sprinters have a decent shot in the World Championship road race?

thanks!

Yes. Cavendish, Hushovd, etc. Depends on the course.

Milan-San Remo seems to be doing its fair share lately
And although not technically one of the monuments, Paris Tours is considered the "sprinter's classic"
