If I was going to make a bet this week then I would put it on Purito winning AGR and FW.
You are free to go ACF on this forum. Purito deserves it imo. He's getting closer and closer to winning these races.

Hope so! Best scenario afterall.
A bunch sprint up the Cauberg certainly isn't the most entertaining ending like it was in 2010.
Last year it was good with a reduced group of 11, allthough with a clear and unbeatable rider in that same group which ofcourse allready kinda spoiled the tension.

Can't see past those top 4, really.
I think the top5 is a very good top5.
Anyone else from that top5 winning would allready be a little surprise.
Also Gilbert, because if he wins it is surprising that he all of the sudden wins.

Valverde is the wildcard. Its possible he can do it.

Count me in. Would be frustrating if he doesnt win one considering he was 2nd last year only to gilbert who was out of this world.

Yep. I think this IS the year for him to win one.
If he doesn't, well, I wouldn't go as far as saying he never will, but......

2010 was more interesting than last year?
