Paris-Roubiax on tap

It’s Roubaix time and that means drama. Who’s hot? Who’s not? We got a pretty good glimpse of who’s the strongest classics man last week in Flanders but are there any other threats out there who can mount a challenge? Last year a dark horse took the crown and this year without Cancellara the dynamic of the race will certainly be different. Who’s your pick?

Boom boom Boonen has got a target on his back, can he pull it off again?
You can expect a little of this on Sunday. Why are all the Spanish guys involved in these crashes?
I think Pozzato has got some sneaky form ready to bust out
Juan Antonia Flecha always rides a special Pinarello for Roubaix. I hope this year he takes it.

1. Juan Antonio Flecha
2. Tom Boonen
3. Random guy from the long break who gets caught and then blasted by Boonen in the sprint. (Juan Antonio Flecha solo into Roubaix though)
Honorable mention- George Hincapie, I see a spectacular explosion in his future.

Patrick,

You are the eternal optimist. Nobody, including Flecha, thinks Flecha is EVER going to win PR. You can take top five to the bank, but he can't win it.

Boonen is going to win but, of course, that's boring.

-Chavanel solos to victory while everyone marks Boonen on a pee break

Even though, I didn't pick Flecha for the win.......you never know.... I'll choose to be an optimist about Flecha.
