With the forecast for really nasty weather, I'm tipping Hoste.

Nuyens is the one for the cold and slop.

Apparently BF and the bookies just don't agree.

Wonder who's right?

Even though I voted Boonen, I've actually started leaning more towards Hincapie.

This could possibly be his last season, and he's a classics rider, so he's gonna come out swinging. Especially with the forecast calling for cold, wet weather.

He may be past his prime, but I will say that this is probably the best team he has had to support him through the classics.
