The Brabant Arrow: LIVE!

Brabantse Pijl... Fleche Brabanconne... honestly, I am a little confused about this race. The fact that Oscar Freire won four times made me think of sprinters, but several trusted sources corrected me that this is a climbers' race, and the final circuit includes the Bruineput and Alsemberg climbs. So it's not that selective, necessarily, but it is climby. I know he rides for Silence, but it's a perfect race then for Philippe Gilbert. Maybe a Velits surprise? Anyway, enough guesses, let's get started.
