Paris - Roubaix 2009

Why tiny people not make thread yet?

Seriously though, it'll be a cold day in hell before Devolder or Haussler win.
EDIT: same for Cancellara. He'll do very well to finish the race.
But who will win?

Thoughts?

I believe I speak for everyone when I say "Is it sunday yet?Is it sunday yet?Is it sunday yet?Is it sunday yet?Is it sunday yet?Is it sunday yet?Is it sunday yet?Is it sunday yet?Is it sunday yet?Is it sunday yet?Is it sunday yet?Is it sunday yet?Is it sunday yet?Is it sunday yet?Is it sunday yet?Is it sunday yet?Is it sunday yet?Is it sunday yet?Is it sunday yet?Is it sunday yet?Is it sunday yet?Is it sunday yet?Is it sunday yet?Is it sunday yet?Is it sunday yet?Is it sunday yet?Is it sunday yet?Is it sunday yet?Is it sunday yet?Is it sunday yet?Is it sunday yet?Is it sunday yet?Is it sunday yet?Is it sunday yet?Is it sunday yet?

Boonen, Pozzato, Devolder, Haussler, Cancellara, Hincapie, Hoste. Those are my thoughts.

I think that Devolder has no chance. I mean he won in Flanders because he is a good puncheur rather than a grea great cobbles rider. And Boonen isn't goign to let him winning again!

Flecha FTW!Pfft

No Devolder and Cancellara as favourites

Cancellara is the huge question mark. We've no idea in what shape he is.

the thing is that with a chain problem in Ronde, a flat tyre in Gent-Wevelgem, he didn't even manage to test his form
So, what will be Cancellara's next problem on Sunday ...?

Devolder benefitted purely from Pozzato's and Boonen's private battle, whilst Silence Lotto are still just not as good as Quickstep. If we're talking about experience as well, Cervelo have a lot of it, and if they can get Haussler up there, he could be a nice surprise like Maskant last year. Though of course we're seen what Haussler can do in other races already. The team to beat is still very much Quickstep, and they can pull out any number of scenarios to screw other teams over. Needless to say, I'm making sure I watch as much of it as I can this year.

One day and 16 hours until first roubaix stream starts.

Oh and Is it sunday yet? Is it sunday yet? Is it sunday yet?

There's that guy called Stijn Devolder. Won some little race in Belgium last week.
There's no point slapping a schleck - Sean Kelly on "Who needs a slap"

Pfffft....


Pfft

Anyway, here's my quick rundown of the names people are throwing into the works:

Tom Boonen - Main favorite by a longer shot than most years
Stijn Devolder - No. just no. For a few different reasons
Martijn Maaskant - He'll be very much up there, I think.
Fabian Cancellara - You can say what you want about bad luck, but to me he's quite obviously off form. He'll do well to finish the race.
Juan Flecha - The other opponent to Boonen, in my view. He showed he's in form last week. Is this his year? He doesn't have many left
Heinrich Haussler - Oh please. It's his first Roubaix, his characteristics aren't suited to the race and he's not in top form anymore. No chance.
Sylvain Chvanel - I think he'll be good. Just not "mess with the favorites" good.
Filippo Pozzato - There aren't any climbs here, so this race isn't to his characteristics. So unless he's in unbelievable form that comes once in a lifetime, he should be good, but not enough to win it.
George Hincapie - In previous years he would've been far better in previous races. Seems pretty obvious to me that he's on the downward slope.
Leif Hoste - A question mark.


Anyone else: try again next year.

@doddy...yeah but as some others just said he is a good cobbles rider but he isn't good enough to battle with cancellara(if he is in shape) or boonen...he won the ronde vlaandere cause he is also a nice puncheurWink
 
Il Gladiatore
Maaskant or Langevelt (guess my nationalityPfft)

I hope Flecha wins.Underated and (seems like) a nice guy (not that it counts for much).A deserving winner IMO.
ie not Boonen.
