There is a short list of riders for whom editors would have a hard time choosing their best ten wins of a single year. Belgian Philippe Gilbert, with at least 16 major wins so far this season, leads the list.

The UCI WorldTour rankings leader lines up Saturday at the Giro de Lombardia, where he is among the favorites. If he does close out the season with a win, we’ll have to add an 11th greatest win of 2011.
