All this year: 2nd at E3, 1st at Gent-Wevelgem, 2nd at Flanders. Last year saw him 2nd at G-W, 5th at Flanders, 14th at E3 plus a win on stage one of Driedaasge De Panne.

Tournament Mojo

In round 2, The President of Fastvakia was neck and neck with #7 Van Der Flecha but like last Sunday's Ronde, he pulled away in the finale, eventually winning 44-27.

Alessandro Ballan

Cobbled Credentials Again Please?

Won Tour of Flanders once. Won Driedaasge De Panne once. Three-count em-three 3rd places at Paris-Roubaix. 2nd at E3 once. 3rd at Flanders last year.

Tournament Mojo

The currently injured Ballan took out Luca Paolini in the last round, 42-14.

Commentary

Very interesting contest here. The Vet Ballan with more credentials, including a Monument win while the Kid Sagan with more potential.
