Amstel Gold Race

Cunego, Valverde, Schleck, Rebellin? Cunego is in fine form. Haven't seen much from Rebellin yet this year.

Amstel Gold has my favorite finish of any race.

Cunego
Schleck
Valverde
Sanchez

Valverde for the Trifecta, before he gets suspended for two years. Everything he does now, will help in contract talks for 2011.

This is a very tough race to pick, a very open race. I pick Valverde, Cunego, Kirchen in that order.

Darkhorses Gerrans, Kroon and Kolobnev. I see Haussler is named on the start list. It will be interesting to see how he goes.

Edit - Kirchen is on the startlist but isn't riding. I'll take Sanchez for 3rd!

I liked the finish. Katyusha is one of my favorite teams.
