Just looked at the weather forecast. Highs of around freezing with snow flurries. Should be fun.

Hushovd. He needs some confidence if he's going to have any chance at P-R.

Probably between Roelandts, Boom and Hushovd imo. But there's usually a slightly surprising winner in Omloop, so who knows.

Would be fun to see Maaskant get back to the level he had before his crash in 2011 P-N.

It'll be a Norwegian. Hushovd or Boasson-Hagen.

Boom FTW, Thor and Pippo I think could also both take it with their current form. And Stybar I think could go well too, he could even be the surprise winner.

Blanco vs. Quickstep for me

Lets see if it's time again for 'The Unstoppable War Machines'

Heart says: Boonen _O_
Brain says: Terpstra or Boom
