Final 3km includes a slope of 45m gain over final 1.5k. Averages about 3% by my maths

Here is a video of the 2011 finale

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hEXoShiR7XQ

I have not seen the road in real life but from the TV it always seems like a really long, slightly uphill drag. I like it a lot as a finish

I think last year was a sprint from a reduced peloton right? In any case you don't want to start your sprint too early I believe!

Very good racing, nice finish. And what a fight by Klemme there!

yep, 2011 was a great edition. Before the clip Leukemans was alone for 30-40km or so. Great day all around.

I think we need a good match up.
Very strong! Heart over head, I'll go for Ben Swift.

Does anyone know what the weather situation is like?

Thanks D&C, though my head stands no chance now, as Stannard grew up in the same city as me. Could be a good course for the big man, but he hasn't shown much so far. Sky's training schedule etc.....

Stuff it. He's going to win something this season, might as well be now. Will put a small bet on Stannard

It does indeed. No you can't say 'morgen morgen', that's 'morgenochtend'.
