Albasini is my outside pick as well. He can climb and he can sprint, and as you said, he showed good form in Paris-Nice. Whether he gets a real crack at it depends on how much work GreenEdge decide to do for Gerrans and/or Goss.

Of the favourites I'm going to go with Chavanel. His sprint win against Cav last week was impressive, and he's due a classics win.


I don't think Albasini is riding this one.

Bugger looks like you're right. At least betfair doesn't take your money unless the rider starts.

It's a shame Ladbrokes don't have the same policy.

Looks like it's up to Chavanel to bring home my bacon.

Point being they thought they gained power by using them, then realized the power gains were illusionary, so went back to round.

My money would definitely be on Thomas at these odds. And Haussler is "unlikely" (it's rare any rider is "likely", Sagan and Cavendish exceptions in many cases) but in my view not that unlikely.

My tiny longshot bets on form and sentiment...

Heinrich Haussler 48-1 It would be a poetic one, but unlikely
Gerald Ciolek 75-1 A bit of form, a bit of one for the litte guys, he could pull a 'Goss' I think
Moreno Moser 38-1 The Cannondale plan B
Geraint Thomas 46-1 Let's see what they've been doing up in Tenerife
Michael Albasini 80-1 Form, he dusted a small group in Paris-Nice

We'll see....more just to have a flutter.

With all the new aero helmets, I cannot help to think that Briko was way ahead of the time with the twinner.

I still miss my las bionix but for some reason these new are not doing for me. The Scott looks big and Spec doesnt look like it is all that aero though they will say it is. Cold weather makes them all more useful though.
as for msr too bad it was shortened a bit. i dont see Sagan pulling it out either.

But still need something to cover the ears though.
