If you were busy with other things early Easter morning like I was, you missed Fabian Cancellara`s excellent move in the closing kilometers of the Tour of Flanders to seal a victory over Peter Sagan by over a minute. Here`s a link to a Dutch video documenting the move. Fabian really put the hurt on Sagan in the final 25 meters of the climb - watch the gap that develops.
The gap that Fabian was able to develop over the final kilometers is quite remarkable and remeniscent of his dominating victories in Flanders and Roubaix a few years ago (you know, that year that he was accused of having a small motor in his bike???).
The english video of the closing kilometers is decent and worth a watch to see the final margin of victory. Fabian sits up with about 200 meters to go - Sagan and Roelandts aren`t even in the same kilometer. Seems that Sagan still had enough in the tank to keep Roelandts from really contesting the sprint for 2nd.
My plan is to have the flexibility this coming Sunday to be parked on the couch watching Roubaix unfold live. There really is something special about the final secteur of pave and the lap around the velodrome. What do you think? Fabian again? Sagan to challenge since there is no climb?
