It's cobble time in Belgium. Who is your pick?
It's a tough one to predict. There are a lot of big names in the mix and we don't know who's really in form right now. Last year's winner, Sep Vanmarcke, will be there. As far as I can tell nobody seems to be picking him for a repeat victory. Hushovd and Pozzato are both coming off of recent wins, so they're getting a lot of love. Lars Boom is also getting a lot of love, but I'm not buying into it. Boonen will be there, but he's recovering from a serious arm injury. I wouldn't pick him, but I wouldn't count him out, either. Since I don't see a clear favorite, I'm going to go with a little bit of a long shot: Nick Nuyens.
