Since a few years sprinters were the winners : Goss, Bole while before we had attackers and climbers who won (for example Voeckler)

I expect GVA close, wil LLS be able to keep his condition for tomorrow?

could any1 post a profile of the race?

can a hilly classics type of guy win this if the race is properly attacked?
Yes, last year Bole attacked as Maltiv is saying and held off the small peleton.

So it's really quite a fun course in wchich we won't see a bunch sprint, but either solo attacks and solo win or small bunch sprint imho.

This is a race for the oportunists.
The field will be smashed up the last hill, and be wide open for oportunists the final kms to the finish.
Expect something from guys like Voeckler, Luis Leon, Chavanel, Kolobnev or maybe Leukemans.

Europcar win would be enough for me, no need to get 1-2 :D
 
The 3 main favourites in my view are Voeckler, Sagan and Gerrans.
Voeckler of course shall animate, Sagan is peaking for the WC and is just great overall and Gerrans has won here before/ rode well at CSS. He also has such a strong team with a previous winner in Goss.
**** Ventoso, Sanchez, Bole, LLS, Martin ( tried to chase in CSS ), Kolobnev/ Paolini, Leukemans ( won a good race recently ) and GVA.
*** EBH, Roelandts, Costa/ Visconti, Matthews, Simon, Gallopin/ Nizzolo, Demare, Nuyens, Bozic and Haussler.

Other riders who i think could feature are Bardet, Ulissi, J Izaguirre, Chavanel and Fedrigo.

GE have a strong team actually: Gerrans and Goss have both won the thing, and you wouldn't bet against Albasini either.
