Cancellara wins Ronde of Flanders
BRUSSELS -- Fabian Cancellara broke away on the final hill of the Ronde of Flanders and finished the classic in his time-trial style to win the WorldTour race ahead of Slovak Peter Sagan.
Cancellara won his second major WorldTour race in the last two weeks. He also won the E3 Harelbeke event on similar terrain.
The victory makes Cancellara the favorite for next Sunday's Paris-Roubaix classic, particularly after Belgian Tom Boonen crashed our early in the Ronde.
