How about 2010 and 2011? Paris Nice as a neo pro was absolutely unreal.

Have some seriously good photos of this fella. Lets start with the most recent:

FTFY.

He is immense. Anyone know which classics he is targeting? M-SR I assume? I think he can probably win them all in his career

Blimey I've never seen a no handed wheelie before and I've been mountain biking since 1993 that's some impressive shizzle.

He's quite handy at going fast too

We were about 10 metres away when he did that (camera's pointing right at us) on the Planche - picture the scene: beer in hand, in the sun, just having watched Froome take the stage (with Wiggins going into yellow), Sky bossing the climb from bottom to top*; VDB, Bottle, SSanchez, Menchov all getting a right good shafting... then Sagan does that. Can watching a race ever get better?
The roar of appreciation from the crowd on the barriers who saw it meant that everyone who wasn't in line-of-sight got a chance to see it on the big screen (slight delay, I guess)...
It was almost like a "That's all folks!" moment.




*and people say it was boring: not when it's your team it's not. Plus, there were loads of excited "ooh-la-la's/encroyable!" from the French fans as one by one contenders got shelled...

^Absolutely top roadside Karma and what an anecdote, cheers. I'm breathless to hear about the bit where he signs your chest. The ecstatic crowd reaction really adds to this vid.

His debut at Paris-Nice was astonishing, a win from a reduced bunch sprint and then a couple of days later he just rode off the front on a hilly run in and held off the rest of the peloton.

I'm looking forward to seeing how he does in the spring classics this year. That first monument victory is hard to achieve but I think he'd be disappointed if he doesn't win at least one this spring.

If you've not seen it, there's an excellent interview with him in Procycling this month.

Remember he was at the TdU, horrible crash, a billion stitches and as I remember still went on the attack with Cuddles on the Willunga hill stage.

LLS with the WTF (one of two in this tour) as Sagan takes him at top of a Cat 1.

He went down the other side quite fast too: 15:10 in this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t1dxx2jlFLg

he is the rider Boasson-Hagen always promised to be unfortunately for Eddy I think they are very similar riders but can't see him ever beating Sagan to a big win
