Congrats to Alessandro Ballan!! What a magnificent last 4km he did when everyone else in the lead group thought he was out of contention! :D

One of the best world champs.

I love that the world champ is a classics rider. The best part of Boonen being world champ is that he would turn around and win. Bettini never did shit.
- Zipp rims will break if you look at them too hard
- R-Sys wheels will spontaneously explode
- The ZG crankset will never, ever exist
- Everyone needs Lightweights, even if they're fat and old
- Parts actually made of metal are SO 10 years ago

I bet Ballan is going to one of those world champs that dissapears.

he just doesn't seem to have a killer instinct. He was just one of the three Italian riders in that group that happened to make the killer attack. Could have been either other the others.

Totally dead and unable to finish strong.

From a break. Like I said, no killer instinct. Seems like a nice guy.
