My (unrealistic) wishful thinking..

MSR - Gilbert
Ronde - Gilbert
G-W - Van Summeren/Breschel
P-R - Chavanel


Hope Gilbert can pick up one of those anyway. I reckon he could hold an attack over MSR's last hill. Maybe Chavanel can get top 5 if he's lucky in Roubaix, maybe top 3 if he gets in the right break. QST 1-2-3? :p

Still, it's pretty useless guessing until we have the full startlists, and even then...

I think that, realistically, Boonen or Devolder will win at least one of Ronde & Roubaix between them.

My picks:

Boonen: MSR and P-R

Cancellara: Flanders

Hincapie's bike will break in half on the P-R cobbles and he'll ride the front wheel like a unicycle, just missing the podium.

Hoste will get out-sprinted for second at Flanders by a kid on a tricycle who wandered on the course by mistake.

MSR Boonen (in good form and cav is bad atm)

PR: Pozzato

RVV:Ballan (think he's getting some good form)

Gent: Devolder

San Remo: Gilbert (Hagen to come a close second, followed by Boonen)
Gent: Pozzato (easily wins against Haussler and Hushovd)
Flanders: Boonen (not letting teammate Devolder take another one, Chavanel and Cancellara to round out podium)
Roubaix: Cancellara (big fella is back and ready after missing out on Flanders, Hushovd and Boonen close behind)

What's the poll for? Just Roubaix? It's very confusing.. maybe you need a poll for each of the monuments?

I know it's a little early but who do you guys tip in the Ardennes this year? Going on current form of course.

I think that Peter Sagan may surprise a few people and the Schleck boys are targeting these races again this year.
How to ride like a Tour champion!
