I am through trying to predict what will come next in this race. Luis Leon Sanchez is one of several Caisse d'Epargne riders suddenly grabbing the sport by the throat, and the traditional Paris-Nice finale, while hilly, is not usually a place to make up gobs of time. So it only stands to reason that nothing much will happen today. And every time I say that, the race detonates... The lesson, as always, is not to listen to me.
