In addition to the others I wrote about, Benoot could definitely still get some top 10s in Belgian 1.1s and Woods could also get some in the Italian semi-classics.

This race is close only because Benoot has also had another 12 races where he finished between 11th and 15th; he has near misses even from the top ten.

Izagirre was leading him 20-13 before crashing out of the Tour prologue. It's taken Benoot 3 months to catch up.

I think there was a reasonably good chance that Izaguirre could have managed a win without the tour crash, it would have been a shame for him to win this in my opinion. Of course he still could :D

Thanks for all the updates valentius borealis, I love this competition.

Yes, Izagirre had five wins last year. He probably would have won something. Benoot, however...he is such a good rider, but he really doesn't seem to know how to win yet.

So... while Izagirre and Benoot were watching each other, Gavazzi sneakily went on the attack?

Some marquis names: I hope that Benoot gets one early in '18. What a waste so far, with so much talent. Ion...OK. SK, bad season definitely. Roche, Vakoc, Carapaz...Meintjes :mad: . Overrated? Sam Oomen, too bad, but it will come. Vanmarcke, that he couldn't win just one, I can't believe it. Yikes. Wilco (like Vanmarcke), you suck wheels, second is the best that you'll get. So much for the new Merckx :o ...
When I woke up and saw the yellow jersey that I had left by my bed the night before, I asked myself: "what are you doing in Merckx's bedroom?" I couldn't believe it - Bernard Thevenet
