Fabian Cancellara wins 2014 Tour of Flanders!
Fabian Cancellara (Trek Factory) defended his 2013 Tour of Flanders title by besting Greg Van Avermaet (BMC Racing) and Sep Vanmarcke (Team Belkin) in a sprint to the finish line.
The results are just in but this much is known. Fabian Cancellara attacked on the final climb along with Sep Vanmarcke. They joined forces with Van Avermaet and Stijn Vandenbergh and Cancellara beat them all in the final sprint.
This is Cancellara’s third win in Flanders and it ties him with other greats for top spot with the most wins. Next on the agenda for Spartacus will be Paris-Roubaix which would give him the Flanders-Roubaix double for the second year in a row if he can pull a win off there.
Fabian truly is one of the all time greats in the history of professional bike racing.
