So it's settled then. Cancellara is the more robust, powerful and better rider on the famed pave.

What else can we talk about?

Ofcourse. All dutchies are the same...

What I know of De Vlaeminck is that he's quite a bitter man usually. Wether he cares about his record or not I do not know.

"Tom is the best spring rider of the last 20 years. But now he needs to try and win Milan-San Remo and the Giro di Lombardia like I did."
Roger De Vlaeminck in Het Niewsblad after Boonen equalled his record of four wins in Roubaix

This was pulled from the 2012 Year in Review Issue of Cycle Sport magazine as one of their quotes of the year.

Sorry if I flared up a bit, yesterday but Ryo really gets on my nerves. I never thought I would've said that before I registered here.


No, he's not a bitter man, I don't know where this idea comes from and he does not care about his record, or no longer. People aged 65 have other things to care about.
