“Flanders is not enough. I am not satisfied." - Fabian Cancellara

The undisputed leader of the team, Fabian Cancellara, like Trek, wants to be best in class. He is without doubt one of the best against the clock in history, and untouchable on the cobbles; there is perhaps no better Classics rider than him.

Last year he won the Tour of Flanders, sprinted to second in Milan-Sanremo, and battled to a hard-fought third place at Paris-Roubaix, but Fabian said at season’s end: “Flanders is not enough. I am not satisfied.”  

Aside from his own aspirations, Fabian wants to help bring this mixed team of veterans and youth together. He considers this a key element for the future of the team and the sport.

Fabian lives a quiet life at home with his wife and two daughters and when not deeply immersed in the rigors of cycling he spends his remaining time with his family. He is the quintessential professional: passionate, intense, focused, and confident; he pays attention to every detail. He is strict in races, often driving his teammates beyond exhaustion – but he is loyal to the core and riders willingly go above and beyond to ride their guts out for him. He is a true champion.

There is one thing missing from his palmarès, one he would love to mark off his bucket list: winning the rainbow jersey on the road. He still has a few chances left in his storied career, and not many are better at focusing, and attaining, a goal than Fabian.
