Stefan Bissegger is the new Fabian Cancellara thread

Maybe a bit early for a thread but hey, if Matteo Jorgenson can have one...

I couldn't resist the temptation to open the thread because a comparison to one of the best riders of the previous decade is obvious. A Swiss rider with a big engine who has shown inclinations towards classics and ITT.

A very good finish too as evidenced by today's stage.

There was another rider who had a successful debut with EF in BinckBank Tour similar circumstances 2 years ago but hasn't shown much since then unfortunately. I'm talking about Julius Van den Berg. Let's hope Bissegger has a better career trajectory from this point on. EF could use another rising star after losing Woods and Martinez and with Vanmarcke's future being uncertain.
 
But Bissegger is a class act, that's for sure. For the moment i see more of a EBH rider in him, than a Cancellara.
Yeah, I've thought about EBH as well as he seems to sprint more and didn't shine that much in U-23 cobbled races but Cancellara got bonus points for the same nationality. ;) I'm also not sure if I wish him to become the next EBH even though EBH had a better career than most of the riders in the peloton all things considered.

Yeah, more in the sense of skillset i meant of course.
