yeah your right, lampre-fondital have got a reasonably good lineup this year with bennati (podiums spots in paris-tours and gent-wevelgem) and ballan, hopefully ballan will keep his form up to flanders as he is flying!!!
I also believe that gert steegmans will try to hinder boonen as much as he can (re:het volk, where he stayed on his wheel until he went out the back of the leading group in the finale) apparently they were always doing it the junior races. this will only help van petegem, hopefully he could retire with one last classic to his name
