It will be interesting to see how much EBH has left for a sprint in a race this long and tough. Ideally he is by far the best sprinter in the group
Boonen's sprint is usually much better in longer tougher races

In any case, they're close to that pavé section where Boonen usually attacks, I forget the name

Did that Giant rider just take a Topsport bidon? Huh?
A trek rider tried (and failed) get two Lotto Soudal bottles at KBK. The Lotto rider was not pleased.
On a related note, was Rowe offering others his energy gel? If so, he's a one man good-cop/bad-cop. He shouts at people to work then gives them treats.

Haussler?
Flip a coin between those two under normal circumstances. Here? This is unknown territory for both.
Id back Boonen and Vanmarcke over both of them at the end of a race as tough as this.

Combo reaction:
1) selfless career domestique having great races and getting time to shine unexpectedly
2) complete underdog, usually Movistar in these races are just making numbers up with an odds-and-sods lineup since the big guns are usually at País Vasco.
Alright, thanks.

I'm still rooting for Boonen though. ;)

He's been the rider of the race so far for me. Done loads of work at the front and still going strong, despite the crash and twice having to chase back on.
 
I'd say Haussler, Boonen, and EBH are fairly close in the sprint these days but it would just be all about who has the legs today instead of pure speed. That said, it's unlikely they all make it to the velodrome together
