I thought this might be an interesting topic.
If you could pick any eight on-road races in the United States as the biggest of the year, which would they be?
How about worldwide?
I am not necessarily talking number of entries, I am talking prestige. For example, I consider the Reedy Race to be one of the most exalted races anywhere, and it has few entrants (relatively speaking).
If you can't think of eight races, no worries.
