Fabian Cancellara (Team Saxo Bank) impressed when he’s in solitary Majesty drove home the 94th Edition of the Ronde van Vlaanderen after running away from Tom Boonen (Quick Step) up the Kappelmuur.
At the finish, he invited on herself by shaking hands with their sporting Director, Bjarne Riis, and so he caught a Swiss flag that he waved when he crossed the finish line.
“It was not easy to know that I was the favorite, but it was more weight on my shoulders during the construction phase of the competition rather than today. I guess it was a perfect race. My attacks came on perfect places. To go in Molenberg was the right time and then I had to try the Kapelmuur because that’s where the legend and history of this competition has been created. When I realized that I had made by Boonen, it was like I got wings on my feet so I pushed all the way to the destination, “says an overjoyed Fabian Cancellara after the finish.
Bad luck for Matti Breschel

Fabian Cancellara had taken the lead role, and in case he had more than a minute, be on the Belgian champion of Quick Step.
