    This is a goal for Cancellara. He'll probably be scary strong. How can you pick against him?

    Actually I am going to pull for Hincapie even though I think he lost his best chance when he crashed in California last year. Well, that and moving away from Bruyneel's doping program.

    He's been strong for many weeks now, gotta drop off at some point.

    I'll go with Boonen even though I don't think he's any where near his peak condition of a couple of years ago.

    I'm going to go with Bro again and pick the rank outsider Carcellanca, or Callencara or whatever his name is.

    I did okay for a beginner picking Pozzato and him for MSR.

    The form man Cancellara is my main pick. Hincapie and Hushovd as outsiders.

    1. Cancellara
    2. Hincapie
    3. Hushovd leading the bunch in.

    Cyclingnews are saying the weather is going to be terrible. The worst conditions since Van Hooydonck won in 89, Excellent.:)

    Boonen might be a bit distracted... the top cycling story at sporza.be at the moment is that Tom Boonen has got back together with his former girlfriend Lore ...

    ballan is a hard man.

    see him bounce up with goussev from the crash in 06 Roubaix.

    Conceded, he IS very thin.

    Bigger riders?

    Boonen
    Cancellara
    Hushovd
    (should QS put Steegmans back in, or are they sceptical about his 260km ability?)

    Big riders could have the advantage. Looking good for Cancellara.

    Backstedt. Boonen.

    Why not Steegmans? He's taken a step up this season. Is QS not bringing Steegmans? He's listed on the cyclingnews start lists, but CN is not the best source.

    I read who was coming in, and Lefevre intimated Steegmans out.
