Eneco stage 7

by chrisdstripes   August 12, 2012  

Could be a tough one to predict today - maybe a group of 20-30 at the finish? I'm not good at guessing these kind of races so have played it safe. No fantasy points for breakaways, although there are time bonuses which makes it interesting...
Boom, Chavanel, Langeveld, Westra (should be fighting for the podium)
Contador (Expecting him to stay with the lead group and hopefully get top 10)
Phinney (was in for the TT, no idea if he'll stay the pace today)
Durbridge (not expecting anything, ran out of transfers so he stays)
Kwiatkowski (in the strongest team, could be a good wildcard. There's probably 5 OPQ riders that could win today)
Vanmarcke (wanted to have at least one rider that not many teams would have, and he's good at the finish if he stays the pace)

Actually I would have Wink as I would also have picked up those 11 points and I was 1 point ahead on the stage
