I have to admit I was not happy last year with the announced changes to the Ronde route for this year. No Muur and Bosberg, what? That said, I HATED the finish of last year's Ronde. Yes, Nuyens raced smart...blah blah blah, but truthfully, he stole the Ronde from a much stronger Fabian Cancallera. From the preview pics of this year's Ronde course, NO ONE will be stealing this one! As for picking who will win, that is tough.
I have been watching races, watching videos, looking at pics and even checked in with some family members for advice.
Chili is confident the Fabian is not only the strongest, but is the most motivated to win this race. Vincent thought deeply on it, and he thinks Chavenel will win in a Devolder like move.
Some good advice from the family for sure. My gut tells me Fabian will win the Ronde and Boonen will be on the podium, but not win. I think Sagan will be on the podium at the Ronde as well.
