Fabian Cancellara is one of the greatest classics riders and time triallers of his generation. The Swiss rider is a four time world time trial champion and three time winner of both the Tour of Flanders and Paris Roubaix. He is a regular on the podiums of other classics and would have won more had his rivals not worked out ways to beat him.

The classics form only half of his back catalogue as time trials make up the other. His talent against the clock has brought him several victories in Tour de France prologues, and as a result he is the rider who has spent longest in the Tour’s yellow jersey once you’ve excluded the winners.

On form he is one of the most powerful riders in the peloton, an incredible descender and a joy to watch.
