Where's that GPS?
Fleche Wallonne is one of the great classics. Memorable for me was the win by Cadel Evans in 2010 while wearing the World Champion's kit and doing it honor. Other recent winners include Alejandro Valverde (2006), Phillippe Gilbert (2011) and most recently Joaquin Rodriguez last year.
Cadel will not be in the field this year and Rodriguez is questionable. So it's looking like Gilbert (BMC) and Valverde (Movistar) will be the only returning victors. Some of those lined-up against them include Peter Sagan (Cannondale), Maxime Monfort (RadioShack Leopard Trek), DeGendt and Westra (Vacansoleil-DCM) and a stacked team from Saxo-Tinkoff including Contador, Roche and newly minted Amstel Gold Race winner Kreuziger.
I suspect Saxo want this win.
Some others worth watching are Albasini (Orica-GreenEdge), Quintana (Movistar), Ulissi (Lampre-Merida) and Martin (Garmin-Sharp) among others.
