LBL : number 100

Start list for the 100th running is above.

Entheo...when I saw Froome and Porte were racing for Sky, I thought the same thing.

But Rui Costa and Cunego are a nice 1-2 punch as well.

Porte? Didn't he pull out of Giro because of problems getting his season going. Surprised he'd be part of lineup. "Porte had originally been pencilled in to make a tilt at winning the maglia rosa but the Tasmanian was forced to alter his race programme after illness forced him to abandon Tirreno-Adriatico and the Volta a Catalunya."

Mollema has been at sharp end of the last two races and says LBL suits him best of the three, so I am picking an orange favorite for his first classics podium. But they build in some extra hills in finale making it even more a war of attrition than it already was so it will be the older dogs that rule the game.

vtguy, drop Gerrans, Amstel and MSR are perfect for him, LBL is a few too many tough hills :-)

chinook, yes, Nibali has this one marked. Martin, is a good pick but I think his knees will bother him again.

well Nibali usually falls on the sword of his own tactics in one-day races. He's got a decent team this year though.

I suspect it will be someone we don't suspect who will win which is why they race the races on the road and not on the internet!

If anyone finds a link to a decent feed, please post asap on Sunday. I don't think nbc has it live on the internet this year.

Gilbert, especially because he didn't win Fleche Wallone.
Valverde
Froome? Kwiatkowski? (and I hope)

I wouldn't pick those legs from a line-up as those of any elite athlete.

Amazing.

Give me Andy Schleck for the win. What the hell I've been wrong all year might as well keep it going. But if he does win I'm due a huge payout.

Dang Andy , you let me down. I was counting on you.

Andy climbed off with about 80k to go.
