Sky only won Grand Tour with Froome. Another stage race was won by Richie Porte in Paris-Nice. Froome also won Romandie and Dauphine. Sky presence in Spring Classic or one day races were not noticeable.
I think there was no dominant team in World Tour races in 2013. Many WT teams also won races as well.
To say no team did as much as SKY is quite an uninformed statement.
In 2012 Wiggins won every stage race he entered. In 2013 Sky won 4 major stage races. They had 2nd and 3rd at Tour of Basque Country, second at the Giro, 1st at Tour of Oman, 2nd at Tirreno, etc. No other team had as many podium results in stage races even with less (1 less) win than the season before.
I agreed about the classics, but they only tried to target them once so far. Wouldn't say they're doing shabby results wise.
Show me 1 team that dominated as much as Sky. They finished second in the World Tour rankings. Katusha, which is full of stage hunters, 1 day riders, and dudes that can't win a Grand Tour, was a pretty far down 3rd. Nibali's Astana was way down in 5th. Saxo Bank was down in 6th. Even then Movistar wasn't dominant- they were just very consistently 2nd or 3rd with 1 major win at Tour of Basque Country. While they lack World Tour points, the only other team that can be considered as dominant would be Argos or Cannondale in the sprints with Kittel and Sagan, but Cannondale finished 9th since most of the victories were in small races and Argos isn't WT.
So please, tell me how consulting race results and UCI rankings makes me uninformed. There is no other team on record that has won as many stage races in one year since maybe CSC or Contador's early Astana team.
Don't take me too seriously. The only person that doesn't hate
