Pro Cycling Crank Length List

I compiled a list of pro cyclists and the crank lengths they used on their road bikes in 2016.  Although I couldn't find information for their TT or Track bikes (if applicable), it's evident in the Tour De France that Chris Froome used a shorter crank for his time trial bike.  In fact, much of Team Sky used different crank lengths to suit the event (Short=TT, Mid-range= Road, Long = Track or Short distances).  Nairo Quintana appeared to use the same crank for TT and Road, and it showed in his difficultly at the final stages.  Team Movistar, are you listening? :)
