    Rookies in the Top 10 during the past 15 editions:
    • Zdenek Stybar 6th in 2013
    • Martijn Maaskant 4th in 2008
    • Bjorn Leukemans 4th in 2007
    • Staf Scheirlinckx 10th in 2006
    • Fabian Cancellara 4th in 2005
    • Arnaud Coyat 10th in 2005
    [/list]
    Stybar could have come pretty close to winning it as a rookie hadn't he crashed into that spectator late in the race though.
    According to ProCyclingStats, Cancellara participated in 2003 with DNF result, so he should not be on that list, if that is correct ?
    You're quite right when it comes to Stybar, his record is the only one of the present bunch that looks like it can come close to a Boonen/Cancellara statistic. With the hype surrounding van Aert, consider that Stybar matches him on CX experience and then has the Paris-Roubaix experience in addition.
    Then look at Philippe Gilbert's statistics in this race; he is more or less at the same level as Mads Pedersen.
    (Take away stars from van Aert, Gilbert, give to Stybar  :D ).
