Paris-Nice, also called "prep" for the classics guys. One week of hard riding, just a couple weeks before the great one-days start up.

My GC pick - Valverde, he'll want to start the year with a bang and he was awful close last year. After that, he'll follow a schedule closer to what Tour GC guys do. Race just enough and do big training camps.

I'd put my money on Vino (Liberty Seguros) - he also is looking forward to starting the year with a bang... moreover this time he'll be backed up by 3 of his teammates from Kazahstan.
