2009 PARIS-ROUBAIX: The Favorites


We've compiled two lists of favourites. The 'A' list consists of pre-race hot tips who are currently on form and/or have a previous good track record at the event.

The 'B' list is more a selection of riders who could break through if they get in a good escape, or luck shines on them in a chaotic bunch finish.

A LIST

Stijn Devolder (Quick Step) - double winner of Flanders

Leif Hoste (Silence-Lotto) - triple Flanders podium finisher
Fabian Cancellara (Saxo Bank) - former winner
Roger Hammond (Cervélo) - former podium finisher
Filippo Pozzato (Katusha) - E3 Harelbeke winner

B LIST
Sylvain Chavanel (Quick Step) - on the up

Marcus Burghardt (Columbia-Highroad) - former Wevelgem winner

The weather
The current state of the cobbles is that they are wet and very muddy. However, it's forecast to be dry on Sunday, it was warm and dry on Friday in France, and currently the weather is improving fast.
