Ok, time for a math question. What rider would complete the following series with a win sometime very soon?

Well today Boom grabbed it!

We have not heard much about Sylvain's preparation for this year classics. Was he injured?

He rode in Algarve. Wasn't too good in the ITT though.

Damn. Poor Chava. Maybe Flanders 2011 was his best chance at a monument. I like Boonen a lot, but I was screaming at the TV when he made the move that launched Cancellara.

Yes, but I think it is possible if they can sort out his fuelling problem, and no one else will pick him so I can be smug if he wins

Doesn't need to be when the rest of the field finish 5 minutes back.

I pick Peter Sagan for every race he rides
I pick Cancellara for every race he rides that Sagan does not
I pick Gilbert for every race he rides that Sagan and Cancellara do not.

There's still enough time for him to be good at the Ronde. This year I'm hoping that Chavanel will finally get the major classic win that he deserves.
