Monte Paschi didn't bode well for the prediction table. Gilbert won and we had him at #16. Ballan is having a great year and finished 2nd. We had him at #15. A classics dedicated Cunego was third and we had him at #18. +44 was the final score. That added to Het Nieuwsblad (+33) and we are +77 on the year. Not the best start but Milan-San Remo is this weekend and that should provide some fun finishes.
Our top 3 are Oscar Freire, Fabian Cancellara, and Phillipe Gilbert. We are giving Freire 15-1 odds.
Sleepers: Peter Sagan (young, but very fast), Cunego/Scarponi (working well together, will light up the Poggio), Heinrich Haussler (crazy motivated)
