After what we've seen in Omloop, I think he's going to be ready for spring cobbles. Not already for M-SR, but for the cobbles certainly.
But I don't think De Ronde will take a big pre-race favorite like Boonen, Cancellara or Sagan. Someone from the second echelon will take the glory, I'd say.
In Paris - Roubaix should be different, though.
