Voekler is pretty good too. Same with flecha. Sagan is the best though.

I'd say Nibali, judging by his excellent descending skills and that moment early in last years Tour where he stopped for a flat tyre or something and ended up dropping his domestiques on the chase back to the peloton, dodging through team cars.

He's one of the best in the business. But Sagan, right now, is untouchable.

tour de suisse 2011 stage 3, one of the best stages of 2011. watching the ascent as well is a must imo.

Thanks mate.

EDIT: a nice half-hour spent there. Really impressive by both; surprised Laurens Ten Dam managed to stay on his bike.

Cavedish stage 13 in the giro 2012 was pretty impressive when he nearly got knocked into the barriers mid sprint.
Froome's pretty bad or at least looks bad

froome looks bad on the bike. Not sure if he is a bad bike handler though. Both he and gesink look like they're about to collapse from fatigue on the bike!
