De Gendt, don't really understand how Contador is in this poll though other than fanboyism.
Difference being that Boonen could win it in a sprint, Canc couldn't, so he had to do it soloThe Hitch said:All were great but when the dust is settled and the smoke is cleared only one of these will be remembered for the ages.
Id pick De Gendt for 2nd.
Boonen would be ranked higher, but unfortunately for him Cancellara 2 years ago did the same trick against far better opposition and far more devestatingly.
I don't agree... Boonen in the PR had more cojones than Contador: he was the faster in the leading group, but he went alone anyway... with 50km remaining and with a full team (SKY) behind him...Spaniard said:It's not the same a solo in a classic than in a GT, you need cojones to launch an attack with 50km to go in a GT when you are just 28 sec below the leader and with the Bola del Mundo stage remaining
