Who was the best in cycling in 2022?

No such cyclist does not dream of becoming successful and professional. Getting into the top ranking is the most pleasing reward. The International Union of Cyclists annually compiles a rating list. Points serve as the basis for cycling classification.

Cyclists score points in races. Points most often depend on several factors: the importance of the race, the number of competitors, the level of competition, and the difficulty of the race track.
