Glad to see good old Evans and young Pinot in top 10 today.

And a nice ride by Sammy Sanchez.

One of my favorite riders but do you get to wear gold shoes forever if you won the olympic RR 6 yrs ago? I expected him to give it up after London.

6/10 for Paolini's bike throw, too much twisting at release caused an early topple. Wiggins yet to be bettered. I want to see splintered carbon from Kittel before the year's out.

Wiggins as well, the motivation just doesn't seem to be there anymore. Without the drive you are never going to win anything.


Wiggins was in a group @1:43 or something like that in Flanders, not too shoddy a result.

For PR, I'm surprised John Degenkolb hasn't featured much as a 2nd tier favourite. I thought he did well at Flanders despite the hills.

Yeah, Degenkolb was pretty strong in Flanders, a flatter parcours should help him.

I've got a few outside-ish bets for PR (Degenkolb, Kristoff, GVA), all around 20 or 25-1, but nothing major as Cancellara is pretty much assured to win barring mechanical or crash.

I'm on Stybar and Vandenbergh!

I feel Omega doesn't repeat mistakes twice, will be a strong squad and if they can reduce the number of outsiders in the front group, then they will give a free role to Stybar and VDB to go in escapes and make Cancellara & Vanmarcke work behind.

Stybar is by far the smoothest rider on cobbles, he has the best traction and a decent sprint I think he can win in a small group of outsiders.

I'd love to see Stybar do it, I just hope OPQS races more aggressively than in RVV. They had the race down to the top 15 or so guys of which they had 4 in the group, and they didn't start firing riders up the road.

OPQS was held hostage tactically by a sub-par Boonen. It wasn't that he was terrible just not super so they we're handcuffed riding for him until it was too late.

My guess is Andy was a doper from his early days on and is now clean. Makes sense given he started to completely suck after 2010 when Contador got busted.

Degenkolb has always been good at the short hills. I don't think it was much of a disadvantage for him. It should be interesting to see how he does in Roubaix.
