Maybe you ll understand if we take a guy from Belgium as an example. You remember Sep Vanmarcke his performance at Roubaix in 2011? He showed great class on the cobbles, but he "only" finished 20th.
For the last time, I'm not claiming he has no potential. I'm merely saying he's over-hyped. There are quite a few guys with the same amount of potential that don't get a "will he win LBL" thread after he wins a race in January. Guys like Offredo, Terpstra, Slagter, Boom, Vanendert and yes, also Sep Vanmarcke.
Although in Sep's case, he won the Omloop het Nieuwsblad against Boonen.
And second in Gent-Wevelgem.
