Columbia was strong in Gent-Wevelgen, and in Paris Roubaix, teamwork is less important than in Flanders.mr. tibbs said:Interesting choices, but I think I'd swap Burghardt out for Pippo, Haussler, or maybe even Devolder.
I just don't think Columbia is strong enough to put two guys on the podium, and Burghardt is probably going to sacrifice for Hincapie now considering that he may well inherit the team for Spring in the next couple years. (Though Boasson Hagen might have something to say about that, too...)
But i agree with Haussler and Devolder. Don't think this is a race for pozzato, he needs climbs.
Other names to look out for: Hoste, Maaskant, Flecha, Leukemans, and maybe Hushuvd
