Peter Sagan will be one of the favourites to win Sunday's Paris-Roubaix . The Slovakian hopes to do well on French cobbles and cross the finish line in first position. Nobody won the Tour of Flanders and Paris-Roubaix the same season since 2013 when Fabian Cancellara achieved the feat.

 

Johan Museeuw, who won the Tour of Flanders and Paris-Roubaix three times but never in the same season, explains that Peter Sagan can do a hat trick. "He can race without any pressure on is shoulders now after winning two major Classics. The pressure is on the other riders who haven't won. His form seems really good and so he only needs stay focused and recover carefully before Sunday. Peter is able to win in so many ways that he can force his rivals to take up the race. He's faster than Cancellara in a finish and probably even faster than Boonen, too", he explained to Gazzetta dello Sport.

 

"The future of the cobbled Classics in is hands. He's got seven or eight seasons ahead of him and could get even better. We're likely to see his name in the cobbled Classics results lot more."

 

Francesco Moser was a great cobbled classics rider. He won Paris-Roubaix in 1978,1979 and 1980, and seessimilarities in Sagan's performances. "I was impressed how Sagan managed to hold off the chase by Cancellara in the finale on Sunday. He made a time trial effort and so beat Cancellara on his home turf. When you do things like that, it really boosts your confidence. It's important not to underestimate Cancellara's pride at Paris-Roubaix but Peter likes a fight. If you look at all his results, both in the Classics and in other races or stages that suit him, he's always up there. The fact that he's also doing it as world champion this year is great for the sport."
