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.

1. Bettini
2. Cassagrande
3. Di Luca
4. Boogerd
5. Rodriguez

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.
Pantani who? nmWannabe

I don't have Frigo in my picks.
