The questions are:
-How sharp is Sagan at Omloop already?
-Can Cannondale get their act together at the semi-classics? Their Omloop line-up looks superb, for KBK it's at least decent. They could walk out with a Omloop victory if they play their cards wisely.
- How sharp Aru's gonna be at Strade Bianche? Moser as well. Vanmarcke and Uran could do something for Cannondale there. For Sagan it should be his first real season goal.

Cannondale ain't gonna be at Le Samyn. Lutsenko ain't field by Astana for the early cobbled classics, suggesting a more climbing focused build-up towards the Ardennes and the Giro!? Will he be at Strade Bianche?

Looks like Astana imho on paper. If this competition lasts until T-A & P-N tough, Aru & Lutsenko should be around the certain favorites for a stage win there.

Eh it's because Astana doesn't send a squad to these silly events..
No, it's because Astana just hasn't been good enough to win. Frankly, their team just doesn't have as many winning riders as they've had in the past, granted Lopez being hurt certainly doesn't help.

And there are two other WT teams in the field as well. Nothing particularly soft about that win.
