  I suppose you could just call them trophies / jerseys I guess. lol. That would limit confusion and the need to describe jersey and classic trophy as being a palmares. lol That would make things a bit easier. However, its a free world and you can refer to "palmares" as being anything you want. Since I don't have many I just include the trophy in with the wins instead of counting it 2 times. :)

Rigana at 01:59 15/1-2018
  Tx. Is there a more appropriate word?

Super Velo at 22:12 14/1-2018
  No problem. Sometimes I go over board with my explanations. don't mean anything by it. My "palmares"in ocm are pitiful. My teams have one "of your plamares trophy" and no jerseys. However if I count the wins as palmares then I have 51 in 26 seasons in the game. lol Which isn't that great either. I'm not sure but I think the french word palmares means victories in english...

Rigana at 19:38 14/1-2018
  Tx Super Velo. My definition might be wrong but a palmares in ocm for me is a classic or tour cat win. It should be difficult to get into the hall.

Super Velo at 16:33 14/1-2018
  Not trying to beat a dead horse in to the ground but this is the definition of a "plamares." a record of achievements
  à son palmarès [victoires] under one’s belt ? to one’s name
  Il compte 25 victoires à son palmarès. He has 25 wins under his belt. ? He has 25 wins to his name.

Super Velo at 16:31 14/1-2018
  Isn't a win considered a Palmares? It doesn't matter what race was won. Palmares are the name for a cyclists wins, including tour category wins. It's not just a jersey or classic trophy. Take a look at the Eddie Merckx wiki. They list all 525 of his Professional Palmares. If you counted wins as a riders palmares it might be easier for them to get into your HOF. lol

Rigana at 04:06 14/1-2018
  Min requirement is 20 results. He has 18. Getting close.

  What about Garcilaso?

Rigana at 13:55 13/1-2018
  Tx. Had it for a while. Been a good few seasons since my last rider made the list.
