Fabian Cancellara has been in which was perfectly adequate for the past two weeks resulting in two really big wins in the Ronde van Vlaanderen and Paris-Roubaix. Now speculation hot if he is a future even for the Tour de France.
His Italian coach, Aldo Sassi, believe that Fabian Cancellara could become as Miguel Indurain, who won five editions of the Tour de France. It should be possible for the Swiss if he gets rid of some muscle mass and body fat mean Italian who was the man who picked up Fabian Cancellara of the Mapei in 2001.
“When we signed Fabian, we knew how talented he was, for he had already won two World Championships in the tempo as a junior, but it was only when we analyzed his test results that we became convinced of his great potential,” says Aldo Sassi for La Gazzetta dello Sport.
– For a skier who Fabian, is not about to raise the bar to take tim-världsrekordet. I am convinced that he can go for the big Circuits. Maybe not the Giro d’Italia but the Tour de France is absolutely possible. We signed him to the Mapeis youth teams with this objective in mind. We saw what he could do in the time trial and believed he could win the shorter stage race to later go for the big Circuits, said Aldo Sassi.
Sassi told La Gazzetta dello Sport how Cancellara could be a Tour contender if he loses some of his muscle mass. He made a comparison with Sky Pro Cycling Team’s Bradley Wiggins who became a man of the tour when he went down in weight.
– For the tour, he will have to lose six kilos, of which two or three would be the muscles to avoid that he loses his strength. If he weighs around 70 kilos, which Wiggins, then I am sure he would be competitive. He would be like Miguel Indurain.
