We are used to people just desperately trying to stay in Cancellara's wheel, or else ride defensively against him. This guy actually went for it and almost dropped him in the steepest part - very refreshing!Netserk said:I really like his style, always trying to make his own luck.
This topic is only recently bumped.Buffalo Soldier said:The only mistake was letting Cancellara pushing him to the front for the sprint. And that's experience.
That is potentially the greatest picture I have ever seen! I have a new favorite/rider I want to win for Paris-Roubaix. Go Vanmarcke! GO! He definitely deserves to win one of the big cobbled classics, and no cobbled classic would be more fitting to win then Roubaix.Flamin said:
Nice photo. I think it will be on again at PR. The Sep and Fabian show with a few others along for the ride. Would like to see Sep take the win.thehook said:The picture he posted on Twitter of him sleeping on the cobbles with his bike. Was one of the coolest pics I have seen on Twitter by any cyclist!
Big Thank You to Sep for giving me a good chuckle on a work day!
Likeable guy and a treat to have during the cobbled classics as he spices the race up.Echoes said:Great article on Sep today: http://www.cyclingnews.com/features/vanmarcke-im-ready-to-take-another-step
I especially treasured the line: "typically he eschews the received wisdom that racing in the Middle East is now a necessity in the preamble to the Classics."
Vanmarcke is a class act - there is no doubt about that.Flamin said:As if he didn't have that kind of form this year?
There will be other teams who will likely take responsibility, so if he can ride smartly and save his energy he might not suffer too much from it.Dekker_Tifosi said:He's even stronger than last year. The only problem is he has no team. He has to hope for a good day from Wynants. But he'll have to do a lot alone.
