Total 2011 wins for UCI ProTeams
In the final race of its final season, HTC-Highroad put an exclamation point on being the most successful ProTeam in 2011 with Tony Martin’s victory at the Chrono des Nations in France. Coincidentally, Leopard-Trek also won the final race of its one and only season with Oliver Zaugg at the Tour of Lombardy. And the only teams to have more than 10 riders among their final list of winners were the equal-opportunity “Anglo” squads of HTC, Team RadioShack, Team Sky and Garmin-Cervélo.

1. HTC-Highroad 49 (14 riders)
2. Team RadioShack 30 (12 riders)
3. Liquigas-Cannondale 30 (six riders)
