The undisputed leader of the team, Fabian Cancellara, like Trek, wants to be best in class. He is, without a doubt, one of the best against the clock in the history of cycling, and untouchable on the cobbles; there is perhaps no better Classics rider than him.
In 2014, 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.”
2015 was an injury-plagued year to forget, and Fabian is only looking forward to the possibilities that exist in his final season ahead of his imminent retirement. He is focused and motivated; not many are better at setting their sights on attaining a goal than Fabian. 2016 is his last year, but it just may be his best.
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. Fabian demands the best from everyone, and he's often driving his teammates beyond exhaustion – but he's also loyal to the core and riders willingly go above and beyond to ride their guts out for him. He is a real champion.
