2 Philippe Gilbert vs 11 Johan Vansummeren


Philippe Gilbert

Cobbled Credentials Again Please?

Two Omloop Hety Niewsblaad wins to his credit plus one Brabantse Pijl scalp. There's also a win at Le Samyn, 2 3rd plac finishes at Flanders, plus a 2nd place finish at both Le Samyn and Brabantse Pijl

Tournament Mojo

In round two had a workman-like victory over Stijn Vandenberg, 37-16.

Johan Vansummeren

Cobbled Credentials Again Please?

A true Paris-Roubaix rider, which of course he won once plus boasts of a 5th, 8th, and 9th place finishes at the race. He also has an 11th place at Gent-Wevelgem.

Tournament Mojo

The Giraffe pulled out his second upset of the tournament, this time riding his Paris-Roubaix mojo to a convincing 42-17 win over 3rd seeded Greg Van Avermaet.

Commentary

Weird contest here. In one corner is a superbly talented Jill Bear who's main Belgian exploits are further east in the Ardennes and who never rides Paris-Roubaix and in the other corner, the P-R specialist (as far as results are concerned) Johan Vansummeren.
