Cancellara the Great

In one of greatest displays of superior skill and strength I have ever seen in pro-cycling Fabian Cancellara last night literally rode away with this years Paris-Roubaix title.
I cant remember seeing anything so impressive since Lance Armstrong was at his dominating best in the Tour de France.
To literally look around at the best cyclists in the world and then ride away from - solo - with 45km of flat racing remaining is rarely if ever seen in pro-cycling.
Cancellara's performance has elevated him to not only global cycling superstar status but global sports star in general, because at the moment Cancellara is clearly the best and most exciting athlete in his sport in a similar way that Tiger Woods is in golf and Usain Bolt is in Athletics.
