Gasparotto, someone from Blanco. Van Avermaet, even. he was pretty impressive saturday. it's not as if they are much stronger than him on paper, but they can do it on a good day. it is just a prediction.
(it's a pity that Gilbert isnt riding btw)
both of those climbs are steeper than the cauberg. where he managed a 3rd. after a tiresome spring campaign, i know. his race to lose is def pushing it, though.
also, i do welcome the fact that Valverde, Evans, Pelizotti, and Cunego are doing this race. just to name a few of those participants that can climb. someone like that can win here
