Brandon McNulty shocked the cycling world in Tour de France Stage 17, doing one of the best climbing performances this year, dropping almost every GC contender on Col d'Azet except his teammate Tadej Pogačar and crucially the race leader Jonas Vingegaard.
The 2022 season has been awash with races for almost two months straight, with plenty of high level climbing performances meriting an early Top 10 ranking. In this list only four climbing performances are from World-Tour races and perhaps you might have missed some of the under the radar ones, which came at races like Tour of Oman and Gran Camiño.
Brandon McNulty continues his great start to 2022 with another victory, this time at World Tour level. He won Paris-Nice stage 5, dropping everyone from the breakaway on the Col de la Mure climb and soloing to his 3rd victory of the season.
ider attacked with other climbers from the big teams, Sepp Kuss, Mauri Vansevenant and Clement Champoussin, and later dropped them on the major climb of Faun-Ardèche Classic.
