So g has no.potential in roubaix? He won the u23 version came 2nd in the tdf stage and was ****ing awessome.in flanders last year, but hey no.potential in roubaix if you say so.
btw you do realize he missed this year because he had a more important goal.to focus on. And last year he crashed a bunch of.times but hey, only boonen is allowed.to use bad luck as an excuse for 2011 right?
I ask you again, what the hell has Geraint ever done during a one day classic? He's only been good in one race during a classic. And he wasn't "****ing awesome", he was just good. So was Staf Scheirlinckx.
If Geraint Thomas has any potential at Roubaix he has never shown it hence I did not include him. Come back next year.
Boonen got second in the U23 version of LBL. Does this mean he has potential for LBL? Strange argument you have there. How many people who won Roubaix for espoirs have gone on to win the real thing by the way?
2nd in a Tour stage. Yeah, that's good. But it was on the easy pavé sectors of Roubaix and 95% of the peloton got eliminated early on because of crashes. Further more, Cancellara was slaving for Andy Schleck and not riding for him self and Boonen wasn't there. Ballan had his bad year and Pippo wasn't there either.
