Msr_new_mediumAh, the eve of a Monument. I know I always tell myself I'm staying in and going to bed early, but I generally only mean that when Flanders or Roubaix is involved. Not out of preference (though, you know), but mostly because I don't feel as worried about missing the key action in the others if I sleep til 5:30 or 6. So see you tomorrow at... actually I have no idea.

[See our Big MSR Coverage: the race and the teams.]

But I do know who I'm rooting for... De Klokke Roelands. My VDS team is sitting in the mid-50s, not bad by my weak standards, and I know the points are coming tomorrow. I've got Farrar, Boasson Hagen and Ballan, for starters, and maybe Matthews or Gavazzi or one of my low-pointers will sneak in there. But then so do many of you. The Editors' League is where the real test lies for me: Eddy Boss and Galimzyanov (he still starting?) are my only real chances, and I don't know how much longer I can stand the taunts of Jens and Superted. Fortunately the former is hoping for something out of Lofkvist, while the latter lists Andreas Kloden as his sprinter.

Who ya got?
