Omloop Het Nieuwsblad

(or Omloop Het Volk).
It seems like forever since racing season would start again,
So who's your pick?

I'm pegging Edvard Boasson Hagen from team sky

I'll go with Boonen to get his first win there.

I'm glad to see that the big races are finally upon us.

At least lotek got the Team Sky part correct.

really excited for this racing season. think we have an excellent mix of veterans
and young talent with just enough experience to keep most of the races less of
a foregone conclusion (where only a handful have a chance to win). think that
cavendish's train has gotten sllghtly weaker whereas farrar's has gotten slightly stronger.
what other sprinters are gonna rise up and challenge these two for consistency?

chapeau to flecha but i still believe that haussler, ebh, pozzato & gilbert will have
something authoritative to say with their legs in the coming weeks.

Agreed. Aside from Flecha, I'd say Haussler & Boonen (untimely mechanical) looked good today. I wouldn't be surprised to see one of those two win KBK tomorrow.

you know, i'm not a farrar fan - i kind of think he's a fourth-place scrub - but given his podium today it makes me wonder if he won't perform really well at KBK.
