Juan Antonio Flecha: The Spanish Flandrian.


The classic 'Arrow'.

Juan Antonio Flecha ('The Spanish Flandrian') has very good reason for classic victory in tomorrow's Gent-Wevelgem. He is one of the 'almost winning a big classic rider' around. He has enough experience to finally pull the big one. A formidable classic rider he helped teammate Oscar Freire win last years Wevelgem.

He relishes the cold and the 'nice' horrible classic conditions and can only rub his hands in glee for tomorrow's race. I hear showers are in the forecast! Back in the 2005 Gent-Wevelgem, the Spaniard just missed victory with a very close second place. Known as the sprinters classic, Flecha has more than enough for the final dash to the line. And, I believe he's ready to tackle the Kemmelberg with rockets on and look out pave, here he comes!
