If you're talking about Boonen: he got sick during Tirreno-Adriatico and was coming back from a knee injury. Those things tend to undermine your preparation.

That's one year only anyway, completely ignoring everything else.
the same boonen who said one time he lost a sprint because his tube was emptying? or the same boonen who got his *** kicked in msr sprint by petacchi, but boonen claiming he lost the sprint deliberatly because he saw pozzato was winning, when clealry in eveyr replay you would see boonen sprint to the line. the guy is a f;'n joke in all of his comments. he's a worse loser than thor hushovd. and also if I got 5 cents every time boonen came up with his shifting gears excuse. I'd be a millionaire. what imbecile is he? a pro rider that can't even shift gears? he's a bigger idiot than andy schleck

He just can't get used to. It happens rarely.

I showed you 5 vids, but you're not smart enough to click and watch a race, so before you call pro riders idiots look into a mirror.

And learn how to spell for crying out loud. Your Dutch is even worse than your English, I find that worrying. I wouldn't call people "dumb" and "idiots" all the time if I were you. Most of them will probably have a bigger intellectual capacity than you.

I never said you couldn't. I said that if you want to play the injury card with Cancellara you have to do the same when talking about Boonen, but Hitch and you clearly have no intention of doing that. The sword cuts both ways.

Sorry to spoil your little rant with facts, but the race you're going on about is the 2006 Milan-San Remo. Here's the video, with slow-motion. http://www.cyclingfever.com/video.ht...o_idd=ODQyMg==

It isn't subtle. Boonen is on Petacchi's wheel and as soon as he sees Pozzato win, which is considerably before the line, he sits up, stops sprinting, and raises his hands in celebration for his team mate. Which isn't to say that he would have beaten Petacchi, but that he clearly didn't try. You might want to watch the video again.

boonen after the finish claimed he would've beaten petacchi had he not sen pozzato won. boonen clealry went sprint full on, when he saw he lost, he sat up and pretended to be glad about pozzato's win. he could've never foreseen that. was very close anyway

Yes, CN forum is not what it used to be, I keep saying it.



However, the answer is Boonen.

Cancellara is the best rider overall, though. You don't need to be a cobble specialist to win Paris-Roubaix. He won his two Paris-Roubaix because he was the best on the asphalt but not on the cobbles, just like Merckx and Hinault before him.

Remember this: Paris-Roubaix is not a race for specialists !
