The Tour of Flanders and Paris-Roubaix are coming up. We have seen some exciting racing so far this spring with the classics and semi-classics and I'm hoping for more of the same. Cancellara has shown a glimpse of his form from last year by storming away and crushing the field at E3. Boonen put on a display of smart tactical riding, team strength and sprinting power at Wevelgem. The showdowns between those two last year were thrilling to watch. A year ago Cancellar crushed everyone like rice under a mill stone as he completely dominated both races and simply rode everyone off his wheel. We saw that again this year at E3 so he has to be the favorite to repeat. Luckily for us there are several riders capable of turning in great races this year and I hope we get a great show.
