Even the crashes came in the right form. It's not like Cancellara was in a prime position and crashed out, or his win was snatched away from him. It's not like Sky lost all their guys in the main group to snatch away their very well set up race. Crashes affected the race, as is the expectation, but they didn't ruin the race for anyone.

Well they kind of did for Rowe, who has been even stronger than Yogi. But as you said that's part of bike racing, you need luck.

Epic race, great winner. 10/10. We can't expect much more in this day and age.

Rowe got back on though. You're right, he was very strong and affected certainly, but it wasn't one of those crashes that takes a rider from hero to zero.

9.5. Best Roubaix i ever saw!

Not a 10 because Sagan and Cancellara were never in contention because of that crash.

I gave RVV an 8 IIRC, so than this has to be a 56 or something.

Nah but I think this and last year's GW are the only races I've seen live that are a 10 for me. :)
