Paris - Roubaix
|Who will hoist the trophy this year?|
Tune in early because the action starts at 6 am on NBC Sports Live Extra. In addition, there will be another Wiskota Team group text started as soon as the Commish can drag himself out his hotel bed.
As for favorites, one name looms large. Can anyone top Cancellera? At this point it seems hard to imagine. Sep Van Marcke has seemed to be on the best form. Boonen obviously has the most experience and wins, but was lacking in Flanders. GVA has been ripping it up, doing everything but winning. Phinney was born for this race, but is it too soon? Eddy the Boss has been given the go ahead at Sky, will Wiggo and the Penguin be there in the end as well? Kristoff seems like a real tough son of a bitch, can he make it to the velodrome? Will Thor finally get his? Or will one of Omega Pharma's many 2nd lieutenants ride away from the pack? I haven't even mentioned Sagan, Degenkolb or Pozzato... Everybody has got a dog in the race so fire up the laptop and hit the cobbles.
Is it weird that I kind of want Wiggo to pull this out? Tour/Roubaix winner, epic. Also, I'm serious about that Haymaker pick, dude has serious experience.
