5. D. Etxebarria
Could Levi show himself here? What about Armstrong?

|Good pick, but I don't know how much money I'd put on that horse. Seems like he is consistently a high placer but not a big winner. He is good though...
I'm going with David Etxebarria for the win, no other picks. For Paris-Roubaix the only one I got close in the top five was my winner, the Lion of Flanders himself.

|I wouldn't pick Armstrong as a dark horse. He always points to Amstel Gold as his spring season goal. He'll use LBL for training.
Boogerd, Cassagrande, and Extebarria I think are all good picks. I'd add Bettini and Nardello to my favorites list.
A Leipheimer win would be fabulous and I think he could do it but he'll be riding for Boogerd so it'll take bad-Boogerd luck and good-Levi luck to put him in the right place at the right time.
3. Di Luca
The Rodriguez pick is only because everyone needs a dark horse and I think Freddy is still underrated, even after MSR and Wevelgem.
By the way, it looks like Pantani's days are numbered. He is making absolutely no splash in the spring season.
