So who's going to win tonight ? Apparently there's rain possibly should make things interesting

Do we have any idea when it might finish? It is going to be a cycling marathon today!

My plans to race tomorrow morning might be fanciful.

My smokey is Larsson. He has been going ok lately.

My pick for who is going to tear the race a new one on the cobbles is Vanmarcke.

Would have loved to see Spartacus do this one, but a collarbone with four cracks in it is a pretty good excuse.

Tom... Another double would be nice!.
Was going to race 3 days this weekend for a bit of practice getting ready for stage racing... But today's is cancelled so the couch it is!.
My young fella wants to go and watch it in person but it is a little but far... Maybe next year!.

A little bit cheeky putting O'Grady in there Richard given his age, form and lack of team strength (he's a special now :P) I just hope it's not as predictable as TOF after Cancellara went down.

I almost didn't , but i wanted to add a Greenedge rider and seeing as his the most likely to be sent up the road, the weather maybe being a factor and the race maybe end in a stalemate with the favorites i figured it was a possibility.

I miss Fabian :( :( :(

I still have a small hope he will pop up in the chasing bunch, bouncing over the cobbles on the new Trek Domane Medical Bed prototype. 8)

Yeah the chase group look like they are all riding on their own, and Tom is slotted in the middle of a train! He's paranormal.
