Philippe Gilbert Liege 2011 was a brutal performance. Gilbert made the competition cry, literally.

In context Contador's Fuente Dé 2012 ride was significant.

Voted for Cancellara's P-R 2011 excellent display in the end.

Why isn't Gilbert 2011 not mentioned? And in particular his clean sweep in the hilly classics (BP-AGR-FW-LBL).
