Fleche Wallone Predictions
Midweek madness today with Fleche Wallone. While not as prestigious as LBL it is still a tough race and a big win for anyone. Perhaps some of the favorites for LBL will not go full gas today. Can Valverde repeat? He has been quiet yet consistent this season-not unlike O'Grady before Roubaix.... I predict a podium of Bettini, Sammy Sanchez, and Valverde. Voigt, Diluca, Frank Schleck, Contador, and Ricardo Ricco should be in the top ten
Damiano Cunego won the Giro de Trentino, could the picolo prince finally be ready to kick some ass? Another Giro title could be his if he could time trial better. Especially if Basso gets banned. The Giro could be a real changing of the guard this year with a lot of younger riders ready to step up as GC contendors.
