CANCELLARA SPRINTS TO 2014FLANDERS VICTORY


FABIAN CANCELLARA WINS RONDE VAN VLAANDEREN FROM A FOUR-MAN LEADING GROUP, HIS THIRD VICTORY IN THE FLANDERS’ MONUMENT.


“I tried to ask Dirk [Demol] through the radio how many seconds we had because the last thing I wanted was the others coming back,” explained Cancellara soon after the race had finished. “That would have been the end of the world. For the spectators at home I am sure it was an exciting track final. It was man against man and I just kept pushing to the end. I did it for the team, and for my wife because I promised to bring the flowers home. I feel sorry for the Belgians. I was against three Belgians at the end….but now I am happy and it’s time to go rock the bus and have a nice evening.”
