Vaughters predicting Van Summeren's Paris-Roubaix win

Just came across his little gem in an interview with JV from late in 2009, i'm sure many of you have read it but i managed to miss it.

"JV: Right. So we hired Johan Van Summeren (from Silence-Lotto), who I think in the classics next year we have the perfect team. We have three leaders – Tyler, Martijn and Van Summeren, so all three games are covered. If you watch Roubaix, van Summeren’s the guy they make work for Leif Hoste, so he has to pull and pull and pull and pull (Which he also does in the Tour – Ed.). So he’s got the long game covered – like an attack from 100k out or whatever and he’s out there all day long. That’s Johan. Or we have to pull the break back. The middle game is typical Roubaix – group of six comes to the line, they sprint in the drome. Martijn is quick – not as quick as Boonen, but whatever. So that’s the middle game. Then we’ve also got the short game if you want to call it that, the Flanders or Roubaix that comes to a group of 20 for a sprint – that’s Tyler. I think we’ve got all three."

JV the Prophet?!  He was a year out in his prediction but its pretty spot on for this years race!
