Default The third men of Belgian cycling

Besides two smashers of cycling Classics, in last five years there have been several notable breakers.




Edit:
Pardon me.

I guess you're asking us who we think the third man of Belgian cycling is?

Thomas De Gendt in my opinion.

JVDB is a TdF placement rider. He got 4th in 2012. Next year he may get 5th. He will be happy with that.

Vanmarcke is more interesting.

Serfla, you will probably get a better response if you spell out the point you are trying to make.

Otherwise this thread simply invites nonsense results which will probably get it closed.

serfla, it'll help if the title is self descriptive, and you mention the names of those riders. Just sayin'

It was a reference to evaluation of De Gendt.
Vanmarcke fits better in the group, though.

Yes. The nonsense equal to comparing Boonen and Cancellara.
"The second men of Swiss cycling" thread is missing.
But I'm not sure there's more than one (man).
