    Cancellara looks so strong, and would have probably figured in E3 if not for the late mechanical. And it would be great to see him go out with another Monument!

    • Michele

      He’s my tip; barring accident or ill-fortune.
      Would love Tommeke to turn back the clock; though that’s unlikely.

    Is this the longest ever single post here on CT?

    • Not even close! Don’t be put off by the interesting videos and photos embedded throughout the piece. ;)

        No fear! I’ve just rewatched Cosmo’s HTRWW videos for about the umpteenth times. So good.

  • Gordon Haywood

    Cancellara looks really strong, Sagan looks good but a question still hangs over his finishing speed if in a group.
    Terpstra and Van Avemaet can never be discounted
    Roughies Stybar and Sep Van Marke
    It’s going to be another awesome race, more-so if the top 5 are still there and at the front with 10km to go

    Pop quiz – Paolo Bettini 2006 (World Champoinship, Salzburg and shortly after, Giro di Lombardia)?

    • Correct weight.

      • Logical follow-up question: who was the last person to win Flanders as World Champion?

        • Michele

          Tommeke
          2005 World Champion
          2006 Flanders
          Though Fabian may have done it after that as ITT Champion :)

    Only a few sleeps to go, neighbours!

    • Bex

      Roger That!

  • Simon Gamble

    Sagan and Cancellara are hard to look past

    • Simon Gamble

      Boom and boom

    One thing we can expect is some atrocious bike handling and abusive tweets afterwards – T*** D******** D*** have gone for the ‘any publicity is good publicity’ route and included Matt Brammeier in their squad for the race.
