    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"
