Spring Classics

The 3 big Spring Classics in my opinion are Milan-San Remo, Tour of Flanders, and Paris-Roubaix.

Last weekend was Tour of Flanders and Spartacus had shown in an earlier semi-classic that he was on some fine form. Tour of Flanders started with Saxo-Bank controlling the race till the decisive splits begin. Cancellara had bike trouble and did two very fast changes, first onto the spare bike and then later back to the race bike. Eventually going alone with current Belgian national champion and former world champion Tom Boonen. Spartacus eventually makes his move in the video below and goes on to win in dominating fashion.

Paris-Roubaix is this Sunday and it will be interesting to see if anyone has the form to defeat Cancellara. Roubaix is a brutal race and the parcours may decide that it is not his day which may be the only chance his competition has.
