    It is the longest professional one-day race at 298 km. The first was in 1907, when Lucien Petit-Breton won. Today it is one of the 'Monuments' of European cycling.

    Boonen will be hard to beat, peter sagan will also be a chance if there is a selection on the Poggio.

    Cav's been flying up the little bergs so far this year - if he's still there in the last few km I'd be hard pushed to choose anyone else. I don't think he's been sprinting this well so early in the season either...

    Cav is going pretty well. We can count out last years winner, Goss is often hard to gauge but he doesn't look fit.

    Cavendish has already won MSR so that should stand to him.

    Boonen has never won it.

    I'd like to Oscar Freire win his 4th MSR/img/vbsmilies/smilies/icon14.gif

    That would be a fitting end to his career.

    That switchback descent coming off the Poggio is a tricky one though, and occasionally throws a wrench in the works. One of my favorites was when Kelly broke away from the group on the downhill to catch Argentin on the home stretch. The Italian's "WTF" expession was priceless when he looked back and realized he wasn't alone, even worse that his sprinting partner was Sean Kelly! Despite being a happy backslapper, I'm going with Boonen /img/vbsmilies/smilies/biggrin.gif

    [SIZE= 10pt]I think it would be pure class to see the rainbow jersey winning, if not I'll be cheering on Oscar Freire. [/SIZE]
    [SIZE= 10pt]MSR is one of my favorite races of the year, when I was younger it was the first race of the year shown on TV (these days I get to see so much in Feb and Mar) and the excitement as the race was screaming towards the Poggio was what made it. Pity they moved the finish further away from the descent. [/SIZE]
    [SIZE= 10pt]Agree with danfoz, Kelly really shocked Italy that day. Incredible that a 36? year old man was able to leave the youngsters behind on such a descent[/SIZE]

    I'd actually dig seeing Sagan win. If he keeps going as he is, he's going to at least be formidable on many different kinds of roads. He's an all-arounder that we've not seen too many of lately. I'd also be chuffed if Boonen won.

    and Cancellara has been generous, no cat and mouse tactics, im not so sure if Gerrans deserved the win, but ok he was there upfront, caught Nibali and then hang to Spartacus wheel and that also has lots of merit,

    If the break was brought back, he was a sure bet for the win. He's got another 10 or so years to try!

    Nibali's willingness to take control of his destiny has been inspiring to watch. Tirreno-Adriatico and now MSR - impressive.

    edit: gotta wonder if Sagan could've gotten across (like he did in a stage of T-A) and taken the win himself, but from his teammate Nibali.

    Good for Gerrans. Sagan is going to be a big force to with which to reckon in the future. He's what........23?
