Truthfully, I have nothing intelligent to say about this race, except that people who predict Boonen to win aren't trying very hard. He will not overextend himself four days before Flanders... and someone else will. Every year for the last few people have looked at him, but he's sitting in like he always does.
Anyway, the second stage from Zottegem to Koksijde is sort of the queen stage, 220 km into the wind. Should be a terrific grind!
