Interesting that he is (still) using toe clips in 1991.

Really thick tires for Cancellara. I wonder if they were 28 or 32. I guess 28 tubulars on the ultra wide bontrager new wheels.

while cancellara pulls off another really impressive victory, I think the most impressive ride of the day goes to van marcke. chapeau to him , especially the way he worked with cancellara to the end and just lost by a whisker. I think he earned alot of respect today.


Well, maybe. A weird respect though, cause the GC of respect or street credit hasn't been invented yet. I think he should have sucked cancellara's wheel as much as possible, to save energy, and win him on a final sprint with a decent track tactic, again, sucking cancellara's wheel, not like he did starting at the front and drafting cancellara to the win...

bad tactic for him, but yeah, lots of respect.


as for davidalone's comment, totally agree.
as for yours, respect and tactics don't have to correlate. i agree with you that he should have let FC take the favorite role more, but then there is also personal pride. nevertheless, his performance - being only 24 years old - is pretty impressive and deserves a lot of respect, regardless of his tactics in the end of the race. as for tactics, it was a very smart move to escape with Stijn at the moment FC was closing the gap with the leading group. that's how he stayed in front until the end.

Disagree. Pro cycling is about PR, generating good image of sponsors. You don't do that by being a wheel-sucking leech. Gerrans win @ MSR last year only disgusted me...did nothing to make me want a Scott. It's not just about winning...its about earning respect doing so as well.

Phinney did work for team late in the race, according to live.cyclingnews.com .

Sean Kelly won Milano-Sanremo with toe clips in 1992. He was one of the last to use them

I missed the race, so can't really comment on it. But after looking at the results, I thought: Boy, the CX guys are doing good on the cobbles of PR !!!

Quickstep had their tactics pretty dead on at one point before Stijn and Stybar blew it. Would've been a very interesting finale if not, oh well.

For all the Trek haters out there, I think that's now all 5 monuments and all 3 GTs :-D

My 'blew' I mean that they had a great hand that they never got to play out., strength against numbers in front, and Terpstra could sit in behind. At any rate, they didn't have the trump card.

I don't see how Stybar blew it . Getting hit by some idiot in the crowd was not his fault.


You want to ride outside the gutter and mix it up w/fans; you get what you get. Spart & Sep were well inside. Chalk it up to inexperience.

Looking forward to watching PR when I get home from work. Meanwhile in women's racing - Oh the controversy and sexism!

Glad they can have a laugh about it but who will make her apologise for her demeaning grab! :lol:

It was not too nice to see Sep throw away his race. I just don't get it. Leading way too much, and leading out the sprint too. It was bad to watch.
