I'd say Theuns is as good a bet as any. Actually don't understand why riders gets taken off this list, when they win. Shouldn't they have their top10 count consolidated. Seems a bit off that a rider can "win" this competition with fx 22 top10's, when another rider earlier that season maybe took 30+ top10's before a win.
Think I'm going to back Danny Van Poppel. Wanty have to enter all the WT races this year, and he's the closest thing they've got to a conventional sprinter. Realistically, he isn't going to win at WT level, but could clock up a lot of placings. There is the risk that he'll have enough energy left to win a .1 Belgian one-dayer
