Yeah, just read Maltiv's post.will10 said:Didn't you get the memo Pisti? Voeckler and Sanchez are lucky, random riders.
My post should be directed to him instead of theyoungest.
Anyway, I still think wins from a breakaway are less prestigious than winning from the favorites group, but that isn't to say that riders like Jens Voigt, Thomas De Gendt, Luis Leon Sanchez and Voeckler are bad. Not at all.
I think everyone can agree that Voeckler was the strongest at the Brabantse Pijl for example. These riders are strong rouleurs and often go in breakaways during stage races. Couple that with a lot of tactic prowess and you have a good combination.
