Seems like he'll be riding Algarve instead.

I haven't seen a complete start list.

According to this article Froome will be Sky's leader in Oman with Wiggins in a support role: http://www.guardian.co.uk/sport/2013...is-froome-oman

Does this matter? Contador starts after all lol

Really though i don't expect much from him. I wonder if he'll get enough shape for milan-sanremo.

I doubt he'll have it at the omloop already.

Either way, we can count with his annual attack somewhere in the Taaienberg

Him and Sagan I'd say. We'll have to see how Sagan's form is, he did get a 2nd in the final stage of San Luis. But the sprinting competition wasn't great for that stage.

Check last km
It is wrong. It makes no sense and does not match the profile. I will be interested to see how Evans rides. Not expecting much but I am still hopeful.
