    Amstel Gold was very interesting, favorites proved they're in good shape.
    One of few strong men who wasn't present in Holland was Vino, I'll pick him for this one.

    Tommy D.

    Or Rebellin.

    Lim or WTB or someone who saw it, how did he look at Amstel?

    I'll go with Valverde, for a repeat of last years performance. Though if Gerolsteiner manage to get two men in the front group maybe it will be Rebellin's turn to win?

    I'd like to see one of Disco's riders at least try and do something, they looked non-existent at Amstel despite having some strong men there.

    Rebellin looked strong. But then its hard to guess because he had team mates in that front group, and obviously didnt have to work as hard as the others.

    Bettini and Valeverde didnt even contest the sprint for second.

    Don't know about Valverde - isnt having the same luck/results as at this time last year. Saving his powder for the Tour?

    Frank Schleck did a gutsy ride. He crashed very heavily about 40 km from the finish, but was able to make it into the select chasing group by the end (nice helping hand from team car though, for at least a minute or more. Who needs EPO?)

    I will go with Di Luca this time. I think he showed he has the stuff at the Amstel.

    By "powder" did you mean dope?
    J/K, read that he apparently got a little heated at the pre-race interview when reporters started asking about OP - he was rumored to "piti".

    Di Luca needs to do something after looking so unhappy with his 3rd in the Amstel Gold Race.

    Samuel Sanchez? Sylvain Chavanel?

    Prolly the same guys who did Amstel, sheesh.

    Podium featured the winners of the last 4 editions of the Fleche, interesting, but stands to reason I guess.
