Ok, we all know that these are the bigger riders, who generate more power, can tolerate the cold, and basically hammer a hard race flat. I was just wondering who some of the smaller riders that have done well in these races were? Has a 130 pounder won any of these classics?

Ballan is a good example from recent years I think. Although he's pretty tall, he's almost anorexic when compared to the physique of riders like Boonen, Hushovd and Cancellara. :D
