Boonen & Cancellara

Postby Milton50 » Sun Mar 31, 2013 16:43 pm

Simple poll. Boonen and Cancellara are the two most dominant Ronde Van Vlaanderen and Paris-Roubaix riders of the current generation. But who will have the most combined wins (RVV & PR) by the time both have retired?

Both are aged 32 and after today Boonen currently leads 7-4.

Just to sit on the fence I'll go for a draw. I think Boonen has won his last monument and Cancellara will win three more, including Paris-Roubaix next Sunday.

Boonen.

Aren't many opportunities left - they're getting on.

Tommeke will win PR again for my money, just like PVP in 2003

A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush. So it's Tom.

Figured Boonen would probably get the vote but I'm a bit surprised just what a landslide it is. It's difficult to see past Cancellara winning Ronde several times more after yesterday's performance.

That assumes the course stays as it is. For whatever reason if the last climb ends up further back in future courses then he might not be so dominant.

Or maybe he'll be more dominant given how much time he managed to put into everyone else on the flat yesterday.

but we all thought he would destroy everyone after his 2010 season, he's only got back to something like that form now 3 years on. So its got to be tom

It's amazing that Cancellara only had 3 before the weekend.
He could still do it. Will have a good chance to make it 5 on Sunday.

Boonen's lead narrows again, this time to 7-6. A win for Cancellara next week draws them level. Who would have thought that back in 2012?

Anyone who voted for Boonen want to change their vote?

I was surprised to hear Boonen on the cycling podcast indicate that he wasn't retiring this year. I had thought he'd be hanging up his shoes this year too. Apparently his presence is also what keeps Peeters as DS for EQS at all Belg races :(

Weird to think I started this 3 years ago and there's only one race left now. Certainly for Cancellara and likely for Tom as well.

Cancellara needs 1 to make it a draw. That would be quite fitting wouldn't you say?
