Löfkvist clearly has good form early on this season and this race suits him, crossing my fingers for gotland!

Lofkvist will do well, he's got the form and is motivated to get IAM some results. But I'm hoping Cance can show he's still got it. And if Sagan decides to go for it, he will at least be on the podium (if not the top step).

Löfkvist is doing Paris - Nice. Don't think he will start one day earlier in Strade Bianche. But I am not 100% sure. All IAM's biggest name is confirmed to start in Paris-Nice (Elmiger, Haussler, Larsson, Löfkvist and Tschopp).

And as far as I have heard Sagan will not start either.

This was originally one of Nordhaug's main target's of the year, but I'm not sure about his form after his minor knee injury. Also, Slagter might be the man for Blanco if he can survive the gravel this time.

I doesn't matter to me who wins this, just watching this great race on tv is enough. If only the Italians finally could buy some good equipment so we can get nice HD pictures. And it's about time this race gets WT status I should say.
