Fabian Cancellara sprinted into cycling history to become the 10th rider to ever win a double victory, the Tour of Flanders and the Paris-Roubaix at the very same year. The Swiss feels that now is the time for him to take a break and enjoy a taste of his huge triumphant success.
Bjarne Riis, Saxo Bank bigwig thinks otherwise. He believes that Cancellara should keep his focus on the Liege-Bastogne-Liege that lies ahead of him within his grasp. Riis is very confident that Spartacus is at his best form of his career ever and should meet the challenge to race at Amstel and Liege. Riis believes he can win it. Cancellara must grab the opportunity that awaits him.
Cancellara has in mind in bagging the five cycling monuments. He has won three and there’s no stopping him now. There are no talks about the upcoming Ardennes classics at the moment. Riis leaves all the cards on the table and lets Fabian decide after he savors his euphoria.
For Cancellara, it has been the longest and toughest three weeks. He is taking time to cherish this monumental moment in his career. He wants to look back and evaluate every leg of the races that has brought him to where he is now. He is determined to meet any competition that awaits him and is set to be ready, well trained for the next enduring and demanding challenge of his career.
