Team Sky’s Rod Ellingworth drew comparisons between Gianni Moscon and Tom Boonen after the 22-year-old Italian took fifth at Paris-Roubaix on Sunday. Boonen, who was competing in his last Paris-Roubaix at the weekend, signalled his place as a future great with an impressive third place on his debut at the age of 21 in 2002.
