Continuing where he left off last year during his visit to California.
An impressive win by any account.
To make it back to the bunch after a wheel change at 7.5 km to go was one thing,
but then to finish off by out kicking everyone left.
Brilliant for Fast Freddy to take 3rd.
Wish Boonen had been able to contest, but there will be another chance.
Oh, no, Roche caught up in the crash. At least it was in the final 3 km.
Drama, action, athleticism, power, finesse.
Fantastic start to this year's race.
