The King of the Maillot Jaune is Eddy Merckx with 111. He also is top of the list for most career stage wins with 33.
Ivan Basso‘s withdrawal from the Giro with injury means there are now only four former winners still in the race: Ryder Hesjedal (Garmin-Sharp, 2012), Michele Scarponi (Lampre-Merida, 2011), Danilo di Luca (Vini Fantini-Selle Italia, 2007) and Stefano Garzelli (Vini Fantini, 2000).
An omen? Not only was the Tour de Romandie the first career WorldTour victory for Chris Froome, but the previous two winners of the race have gone on to take the overall at the Tour de France: Cadel Evans (2011) and Bradley Wiggins (2012).
