2016 Kuurne Brussel Kuurne, Feb. 28th, 200.7 km 1 HC UCI

Second place is still up for grabs! Sagan, Debusschere, Viviani, Boonen, Demare, Theuns/Nizzolo will fight it out. It will be interesting to see how a few young guys does here: Andersen, Groenewegen, Ewan in particular.

Don't forget Jans, Bouhanni,

Trek has multiple cards to play : Van Poppel, Stuyven, Nizzolo and Theuns....
I would say judging their results this year Nizzolo will be their man.
I agree with tou, Nizzolo is the best sprinter os the team and is in good shape. Poppel, Theuns, Stuyven, Bonifazio and Nizzolo could be a good train, maybe whit many sprinters

Bonifazio is the best sprinter for me actually. Simply as Nizzolo ain't gonna win anything it seems. Boni looks like a promising guy with variable skills.

caleb ewan was mentioned in the 5 riders to watch for kuurne from cyclingnews, LOL
He is definitely one to watch. Not on of the favourites, but one to watch. I am very interested into how he performs in a hard race. Personally, I don't think he can manage but he has shown some endurance skills once before, albeit in a Tour of Poland stage where only he was in any shape. Also the Herald Sun Tour stage in which he followed an attack, but that may due to similar cause.

I'd say that presence of an Aussie rider in CN's "riders to watch" is inevitable.

For me, the question is - can Kristoff win both weekend races?
This one looks more certain than Omloop.
 
I like the look of Trek's team. Hoping someone can do something.
