I tow in: Degenkolb, Kristoff and Terpstra (in alphabetic order)

As I am notoriously bad with predictions I picked the three (from those who under normal circumstances would matter) I would least like to see there ;) ....
 
Sagan easy.
If no crash or mechanical problems I do not see how Sagan can loose this. :D
A desperate wish of Boonen to win his last PR and presence of other "strong pretenders" (GVA, Degenkolb, Neasen, van Baerle, Kristoff ... ) limits the strength of QS that can only beat Sagan as a team.

Sagan, GVA, Degenkolb. ---- If Boonen were to win that would be pretty amazing, but I think he'll be too highly marked due to the hype surrounding his last P-R.

I wish, but I think Degenkolb will prove to be unbeatable in Roubaix for the next 5 years or so (unless he has a flat tire, crashes, gets a mechanical or gets sick).

If Sagan join QS, an unbeatable man will appear.

He has never even been on the podium in Roubaix.

He has never had a completely free run at it, though, apart from 2014. He wouldn't have done much in 2015 anyway, but last year he seemed very strong had he not been badly placed and missed the split.

Story of the classics, everyone is a winner safe for being "badly placed" and "missing the split".

Well no, not really. Did you watch the race last year? If so then you know what I'm talking about.
