Rodriguez, Gerrans, Valverde, S. Sanchez and Sagan are the favorites.


Gilbert is an outsider.

Sagan for the win. He deserves a big one this year.

Rodriguez and Gerrans to round up the poduim, closely followed by the Henao-Nordhaug tandem :p

Purito-Sagan-Gerrans 1,2,3.

Gilbert to fail big time.

I really, really hope so. He does look in good form so fingers crossed.

In fact Purito wins Amstel Fleche double. That's my prediction.

I don't like making predictions but I definitely wouldn't count this one out.

Two certainties in this race:

1. Rabo will chase all day.
2. Rabo won't win.

Purito vs. Sagan vs. Gerrans (although the latter didn't seem that strong in Pais Vasco).

Purito does look in awfully good shape, and I'm expecting Gerrans to be there or there abouts too. Outsiders? Someone from Rabo or Sky? Wish Sky had sent Henao, Nordhaug and Uran :D

Yep, seems to be following the Andy Schleck prep to his target races. Expect a top 10. But Rodriguez should win here.

Pais Vasco hills are too long for Gerrans. I wouldn't see too much into it.

Besides Vanendert was **** in Pais Vasco too and he was fine in Br Pijl. (although not nearly good enough to win if Voeckler rides away so easily)

My prediction comes from

Dan Martin
Gerrans
Nibbles ? hmmm
Boonen,& Chavanel

Anyway, two Schleck's can possibly DNF this time !
