|The frantic Sprint|
The sprint at the end was exciting with 8 elite riders all riding for the top podium finish, with Goss winning over Fabian Cancellara (Leopard Trek) and Phillippe Gilbert (Omega Pharma-Lotto). " I really didn't expect to win an emotional Goss said afterwards. "I just what I needed to do. I managed to stay in front and even though I was without teammates, I managed myself well".

His only real competitor at the end was Fabian Cancellara on the other side of the road, but Goss had him covered to take a surprising but well deserved victory. " I was here to win, the team rode really well and I tried to finish that off, but didn't succeed", Cancellara said " I even tried to go alone but everyone was on my wheel. In the end I did one of the best sprints of my life but Goss was unbeatable" (Milan-San Remo 2011, Cyclingnews.com)
