The 100th year of the Tour of Flanders saw a fantastic victory for Fabian Cancellara - also known as Spartacus - but the actions of Peter Sagan probably sparked more column inches than Cancellara's win.

In the women's race Marianne Vos won a great sprint finish to pick up yet another win in 2013, further fuelling the suggestions that the 25 year old is the best rider ever.

Campagnolo have released a special 80th year limited edition groupset, based on Super Record and presented as a box set, this is something to covet!
