Vattenfall Cyclasics

Who will win this years Vattenfall Cyclassics? Should be an intersting race with Cav not racing it as he always dominates any sprint he's involved in.

Here is the start list:
Vattenfall Cyclassics Start List

wouldn't rely too much on that list (Jens Voigt ? Team Katusha with those backnumbers ?)
the provisional startlist was given by the race website a couple of days ago here

I think that Friere should be the favourite but other guys like Renshaw, Davis or Breschel could cause the upset. It would be interesting to see Cancellara break away from the pack like he did at Milan San Remo. He really does cause panic for the sprinters teams when he attacks close to the finish.

Online?

It would be nice to see Tyler Farrar win, certainly not get 2nd!
Might be hard to get past Greipel though (or is he working for Renshaw?).
I'd like to see the two Tassie boys (Goss and Sulzberger) make some sort of a showing ...

Anyone know if it is streamed online anywhere (preferably in English ...) to watch live?

I have a suprise call for Dominic Klemme

Winning the sprint of a small group.
Perhaps an early break with largely unknown riders.
If an early break doesn't materialize watch out for Matti Breschel, Freire, Goss and the other "very-good-sprinters-who-don't-want-to-take-on-Boonen etc."

TV ants has a great (french europsort) feed again.

I wish I spoke French so I could understand the commentary......

I guess I got no excuse though, given that my wife is a French teacher.

I did 6 years of French at school, but it doesn't help much as that was way too long ago...

so, I'm having the same problem :)
