I considered him.

I also think Voeckler will go well.

I am not committing yet also as to who i think will win most of the races as a lot could happen.

Yes it's still early days in the season. The new Ronde course suits him well. If Boonen struggles he'll be OPQS's best bet.
Pozzato seems to be in impressive form though.

Terpstra was better than Chavanel last spring. And in Qatar he seemed to be one of the strongest riders.

anybody knows something about Flecha form?

Also who do you think will be Sky strongest man in Omlop and Kurne? They have so many strong riders who also showed good form already. I would like Eisel to win at least one classic.

Henao to podium LBL

Edit: Gloin went further, and Hitch went for Wiggo

Crazy prediction: LBL podium; Wiggo, Henao, JTL

Ps will whoever superglued Hitch's full stop key please unstick it. Thanks.

It's when he types on his phone that he often hits full stop instead of space Not much to do about it.

Is there even any discussion? Both in the races and in the results Terpstra was better.
