#2 Philippe Gilbert vs #7 Stijn Vandenberg

Interesting second round matchup here. On one had you got Stijn, fresh off a dusting of #10 Michael Van Sateyen 41-7. On the other you got Jill Bear, winner of a surprisingly difficult 44-17 vote vs Gert Steegmans. Definitely it would be silly to not count Gilbert the heavy fave in this match but on the other hand he hasn't the great palmeres on the cobbles that you might expect from a #2 seed: just some medium/minor wins in Branantse Pijl and Het Volk and Le Samyn.

That of course is better than Stijn but let's se how this vote turns out, shall we?
