Tom Boonen will feel sorry for his last year victory and have his *** handed over to him by Super Pippo in Ronde.

In PR Hushovd will pip Boonen in a sprint for the win.

He will feel sorry he won the Ronde van Vlaanderen? Lol, yeah right.

He'll be on top form, not sure that he'll win de Ronde though. Looking forward to a hard-fought, complex Classics campaign!

He'll be good enough to win, but so will plenty of other guys. Cannot wait for the classics.

I suppose he also felt sorry when he beat him at Roubaix in 2009? And while we're at it, I suppose Cancellara also feels sorry for beating him in San Remo 2008?

Pozzato only ranks third at the classics he rides(MSR, RvV, P-R, G-W, E3 Harelbeke, Omloop het Nieuwsblad), far behind Cancellara and Boonen.

Plus now there's Sagan.

With a career like that, I doubt he feels sorry about it.

Boonen will get fit for P-R but i doubt he will win it against a super motivated Cancellara...

Let's hope he does, so no excuses can be made when he gets his ass kicked by Sagan or Spartacus
