Fabian Cancellara stormed away to victory last night in a dominating performance showing all his power living up to his name - sparticus. Seriously this performance was jaw dropping, the way he pulled away after being attacked count less times by tom bonnen, cervelo, sky and others was incredible. He smashed the tiny final peleton with 50km to go accellerating away - ' looks like he's on a motor bike' - gav (commenting on the heli shot) pulling a minute out of the pack in less then 5 km. He pulled out more then 4 min at one point and there was nothing no one could do about it. Fab basically created his own personal time trial for 50 km on and off cobbles after already completing 200km of the hardest race in the world!! He finished he 260km race @ an average of 39km an hour!!

Thor Hushovd (Cervelo) claimed second ahead of Spain's Juan Antonio Flecha of Team Sky in a sprint on the Roubaix velodrome. Tom got going for his third pav'e in a row was betten for 4th by Hamond (cervelo) in a sprint! Not Tommie day!!

If you missed the coverage last night SBS will replay the highlights next sun @ 12 noon. Also check there video link on the cycling central web page, they should put some thing up.

This attack is def worth having a look at - one of the most dominating balls-e attacks I've seen since contador stretched he's legs in the tour last year (mind you he didn't do it 50km from home, on cobble stones!).
