2 days to go ....
The sprinters.... No Boonen, Bennati, and no Pettachi makes a McEwen vs Cavendish showdown look likely. Who will spoil the party? Cooke, Hunter,Hushvod,Ciolek, O'Grady,Dean,Zabel,Lancaster,Nibali,Steegmans, or Freire?
Never mind the guys that can win in from a breakaway or steal it from the sprinters- Backtedt,Voigt,Ballan,Pozzatto, Flecha,Hoste,Schumacher,etc,
The countdown begins. At least by skipping the prologue this year, you get right to the action. Prologue has always felt anti-climatic to me.
