Of course he can't win again this year, unless something spectacular happens. Last year, he profited from some defensive racing that was equal parts intelligent and exasperating, though he clearly deserved his win. This year he'll be a marked man.
Boonen's back at his best. If his confident E3 Harelbeke and Gent-Wevelgem victories weren't convincing enough, his third Ronde van Vlaanderen win is hard to ignore. Last year, Roubaix was a nightmare for Tom. This year he'll want to make amends.
This guy's back again too. He's being suspiciously quiet compared to his doomed assault on Roubaix a couple of years ago, but he clearly has the strength in his legs to challenge for the victory. Cut to shot of him on the podium anxiously scrubbing mud from his beautiful hair.
Why not let Thor be our fourth? BMC aren't having a great time, but Ballan was strong in Flanders and Hushovd always brings something to this race. He'll almost certainly be somewhere near the front toward the end of the race. BUT HOW NEAR?
