Juan Antonio Flecha or 'Flecha' as he likes to be called is already on winning ways. He helped his team win the TTT at the Tour of Qatar. A huge win for the new Team Sky. Of course, a win is good for the team, but he has other goals.
I like nicknames and he's known for two good ones; 'The Spanish Flandrian' & 'Van der Flecha'. He's come so close on winning the two fabled classics, the results are impressive.
Third at the 2008 Tour of Flanders, and his favorite race Paris-Roubaix; a second (2007), third (2005), fourth (2006) and sixth (2009). A cobbled classic specialist is what the Argentina born Spaniard, Flecha's all about. He's a rarity for sure. He says, "I'm more famous in Flanders. When I'm on the muurs training, I can hear people mutter 'Flecha' as I go past. But in Spain, I'm just another cyclist."
Now, surrounded with a supportive team, it's time for the Arrow to fly towards a certain pavé victory!
