I think the exitement centers around, that when you can work out the likely scenario, so can any DS and rider not on those 3 teams.
So it is quite conceivable we will see real captains move much earlier than we usually see at RVV, because no captain wants to ride for 4th place from the gun.... and some of those captains even have a history for (very) long range attacks... like Küng, like Pedersen, like Mohoric, like Asgreen, like Cosnefroy, etc.
It could (tactically) become like Roubaix... but now with punchy climbs... which I think is a pretty exiting prospect
Add to that, that if the mentioned riders were to escape early, they would probably drag along lieutenants like Kragh, Laporte and Wellens... which would make it hard to the big 3 to close the gap later, if that meant pulling the other 2 along, because the team DS may feel it's a better prospect for the team, to have a great lieutenant in position, who can wheelsuck all the way to the last couple of Ks.
I think (hope) we are in for a RVV for the ages
