Welcome Back Spartacus

It was great to see great to see Spartacus aka Fabian Cancellara pull off the win in the E3 Prijs yesterday. Last year our man seemed a bit out of sorts. You can't entirely blame him with the peleton   adopting an 'anyone but fab' approach to last years classics, and the allegations of 'mechanical doping' before that. But I had expected him to show his strength at the Olympics.
So to see him take the win ahead of a select group including Sagan was great. I suspect there will have been a few groans in Flanders at the news that Fab is back. Ah the table set before us, we have enjoyed the amuse bouche, now onto the menu proper - Ghent Wevelgem, Tour of Flanders, and Roubaix. Let the cobbled classics shake rattle and roll.
