There’s just no stopping the guy … even when he’s outnumbered two-to-one.

With his win, Gilbert, locked up a rare hat trick of victories in the tough Ardennes classics after his Flèche Wallonne win Wednesday followed victory at the Amstel Gold race a week ago.
“It’s the most beautiful day of my sporting life,” Gilbert said. “I shall appreciate every moment of this day. It’s a perfect race.”Id.
