Always a bit more of a ccrapshoot than Flanders.....but I gotta figure Sagan has a bit of "red ass" on him right now adn will be looking to exact his revenge. I also think he'll go form a decent way out, not wanting to leave it to chance.

In the meantime, enjoy a litte F-U to my old friends at WCP as I post a link to one of the greatest P-R's ever.....the 1990 race.

Incidentally, one of the (very) dark horses for Sunday is Guillaume Van Kiersbulck......his dad is the Isogalss rider (Kurt Van Kiersbulck) in the breakaway with Eddy Plankaert.....as soon as I heard his kid's name, I knew exactly who his dad was. I can't tell you how many times I watched that video over the years......

Agree Sagan must be extra motivated but he fell really hard last weekend. May slow him down enough to keep him off the podium. I hope I'm wrong because I love his go for it style.

There's no one out there I want see win but Tom Boonen. Mr. Paris-Roubaix to the rest of you. I know it's a long shot but that is the only right end to this year's race.

I like Van Avermaet, Sagan will be fired up for sure. I would love to see Boonen take the win on his last ride for sure, but I think the you guns are too fast for him these days

What Ben said. I don't think its a long shot though...he is in good form and has been putting in work for others, see MSR, see Schelde, see RVV plus lacking a bit of luck, plus this is his race.

More likely though Van Avermaet, hot form and things have been falling his way except that crash at RVV.

Sagan is hurting more than he's letting on.

They way to get Boonen to (maybe) win. Q-S has the other guns who have to be respected even if the are not Boonens. Sent them up the road. Force GVA ans Sagan to do work. Save the best for last. As GVA is locking on to Sagan wheel in the late retrieval of that Q-S rider, Boonen goes. Sagan hesitates, knowing he is pulling GVA for the win.
