Some of the bigger guns of recent past might not be in the race, or at least not on form. This leaves Boonen as a true favorite. But others might be able challenge the mighty Tomeke. Since we only get 10 slots for a poll I'm trying a strange poll with riders sharing slots.

The "tank" Swein Tuft can do well! But perhaps boonen, Cancellara, Flecha, etc.

What ever happend to O'Grady?

Oh go on then, I'll change my mind! I had Tommeke down after the diappointment of MSR and his performances at DdV and E3 Prijs. Having said that, the storyteller in me wants Haussler to win. The guys been a breath of fresh air this season and was just as good as Tommeke in RvV. Haussler/Burghardt/Bonnen. One of those 3! :D

Does anyone think than Big George can pull one out and fulfill a career long goal?

I'm not picking him as a favorite but certainly a dark horse and it it sure would be a great win.

Big George is definitely capable of winning and has been riding like he knows that he has the form. He's managed to ride well and avoid any illness or injury so far. If I could pick a rider that I really wanted to win, it would be Hincapie.

I think it will be the 2005 scenario all over again: Boonen beating Hincapie and Flecha in a small group sprint at the v?lodr?me, maybe with some others there as well, like Pozzato, Burghardt, Leukemans, Hushovd and Devolder. But considering Boonen's top form and the absence of Ballan, Cancellara and O'Grady, I don't see who could beat Boonen in this race where the strongest rider almost always wins.

I really am thick. I thought it was a vote on the RvV. I shouldn't have voted for Boonen and gone for Hushovd instead. I genuinely think that this is his year.

Can the old man win?

I would LOVE to see Big George win... but, at a glance, it seems that the old guys don't win the Paris-Roubaix. Roger de Vlaemink, FOUR WINS, won his last at age 30. The one exception I can think of was Gilbert Duclos-Lassalle
who was like 37 and 38 when he took home his two wins.

By the way, check out Wikipedia's amazing Paris-Roubaix page (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paris-Roubaix)

Roger Hammond is another "old" rider who knows how to ride this race...
