Predictions - Het Volk and KBK

Het Volk - QuickStep domination, 2nd string gets it solo as Boonen sits on chase
KBK - Rabobank cleaning up the scraps

I'd have to say either Boonen as a continuation of his classic domination
or PVP for the record (4 wins?).
All I know is it's the start of my favourite part of the pro season.

PVPSteegmans/Van Impe will win one as Boonen plays ultra domestique again like in KBK with Nuyens last year. Hoste will pick up the other.

Hoste is a tough guy, although not as good-looking as Boonen.

Boonen wins field sprint in Het Volk.
And two random domestique's stay away from 80k out in the KBK.

De Peet....sentimental reasons only, really.

maybe snowed out again?

O'Grady @ KBK....you can get 17 euros for him on Unibet. In the same line of betting as Steegmans.

Hoste, Gusev, Bennati and Ballan are all earmarked by me for Het Volk. Bennati in a bunch sprint; Ballan, Gusev, and Hoste all dangerous in the the break. Not sure about KBK. Maybe Rabobank or PvP if he's doing it.

Michael Boogerd. For something. Anything. Let the man have his piece of the pie, for God's sake.

I rarely say this, but the man deserves it.

Boogie always has a say in the Ardenne week, but also check him the last week of March, right before DePanne and Flanders. There is a race called Fleche Brabancone that he rocks almost every year. The day after the Grand Prix E3. It's a fairly hilly, windy, semi-classic, without huge sections of cobbles.

11/10 odds on that Boogie will podium at AGR

Frank Vandebrouck wins in a solo break (after registering with his own license with his own photo), passes all of his drug tests (no pun intended), and the entire tifosi population worldwide collectively drops dead of a heart attack.
