“There are 6 world-class sprinters & I’m the 1st non-traditional sprinter at the race”, remarked Cancellara.

“I do not have this supreme instinct to identify the very right spot & know when some rider is coming towards you. In fact, I was kind of locked in at right. Yes, I made my mistake & it is somewhat disappointing since I am blessed with good legs.”

“I consider myself lucky as I did nit crash as Gilbert (Philippe) crashed right before me in one corner & I kind of went down”, Cancellara continued. “You would require lots of good luck & tactics as you reach the end.” Read more »
