The Scheldeprijs is traditionally a race for the sprinters, and this is reflected in its list of winners: Between 2002 and 2008, Robbie McEwen, Tom Boonen, and Mark Cavendish have amassed five victories between them. They're in good company, since other previous winners include Eddy Merckx and Mario Cipollini.
This year will be without defending champion Mark Cavendish, who shocked a celebrating Tom Boonen with his late, victorious lunge for the line. That might be bad news for British fans, but it should mean the race is much more competitive, with many more riders in with a shout of victory.
