Which country is your favorite for these Worlds' Elite Men Road Race? Even without Luis León, I think Spain has a strong chance. If Evens did it, why can't Contador do it too? :)

There were only 10 poll options, so sorry about those considering Colombia, Norway, etc...

Freire, Valverde or Purito are better options for Spain. I guess Contador will be a helper

Because this course isn't as hard as Mendrisio.

I went with Spain though they always seem to spit the bit (08 Olympics aside) despite the embarrasment of riches: Freiere, Valverde, Purito, Sanchez x2, Contador ...
I tried to think of a likely Italian winner but couldn't. Belgium seems to predictable with Gilbert or Boonen. Beware the Aussies and Gerrans in a small group.

I think you have the team right, but I would not count out Berto. 10 times up the Cauberg I think will be too much for the sprinters at that distance.
 
My heart favourite, as in the guy I would really like to win is Matti.
My head favourite, as in the guy I think has the biggest chance of winning is Gilbert.

(I'm going with riders because at the end of the day it's only one rider becoming World Champ.)

The 2 big favorites by far are Belgium and Spain. No question about it.

Spain should win though, they've 4,5 guys who can legit win.

Btw is the spanish selection already made public?

EDIT: i've the found the names

Alberto Contador (SaxoBank), Oscar Freire, Dani Moreno and Joaquim Rodriguez (Katusha), Jonathan Castroviejo, Pablo Lastras en Alejandro Valverde (Movistar), Juan Antonio Flecha (Sky) and Samuel Sanchez (Euskaltel-Euskadi) (KAV)

Sami is in it, **** yeah !!! But wtf no LLS, why is that? He should be always in this selection, out of shape or what?

There seems to be no explanation in why LLS is not in the selection.

If there isn't any it's ****ing retared, he should be always in it. What are they thinking?

maybe he asked not to be selected. He's had a very heavy season after all.

Voted for Spain but expecting it to be, like many on this forum, Spain vs Belgium. Other nations have good riders too but not as many who can actually win.

He was pretty rubbish in Canada, might be exhausted after a long season.
Oh could be, but this might have been his chance to win. But ok if he has no shape anymore it's no use obviously

Voted UK as id like JTL to win, but my thoughtful choice would be Gerrans winning a slect group sprint.
