Folks, I'm in Dubai so its off to sleep for me. I have no time tomorrow so I've picked my team already and here it is...

Kristoff
Sagan
Cancellara
Thomas
Chavanel
Maaskant
Napolitano
Gatto
Offredo

I decided not to take any penalties so am left with Kristoff, Napolitano and Offredo where I wouldn't normally choose them.

I'm hoping for Thomas to jump away from a tiring Sagan and Cancellara and do a 4km pursuit to the Finish line!!!

I've got 6 of those and used 3 transfers to get there leaving me 9 for Paris-Roubaix.

I've had Gilbert and Phinney scratched out of my purists though  14

Undecided about Chavanel, no doubt about his form but after his win at 3 days de Panne, he said Flanders wasn't his favourite & didn't see himself as a contender.

Just down playing his chances or will he be riding for Boonen?

I've gone for:

Peter Sagan (LIQ)
Filippo Pozzato (LAM)
Grega Bole (VCD)
Fabian Cancellara (RSN)
Sylvain Chavanel (OPQ)
Matti Breschel (SAX)
Stijn Devolder (RSN)
Maciej Bodnar (LIQ)
Ian Stannard (SKY)

Anticipating a group of Sagan, Chava and Cancellara. Contemplating changing Pozzato for Boonen or Breschel for Paolini but can't decide.

Ok, I've set up my team like this, I am still unsure about one, it might be a last minute change before I leave.

I've only made 3 changes, so leaves 9 for next weekend, but I can't see me being able to make the changes at all  20

Peter Sagan
Fabian Cancellara
Sebastian Langeveld
Tom Boonen
Luca Paolini
Sep Vanmarcke
Wesley Kreder
Yoann Offredo
Gediminas Bagdonas

My choices were a little dodgy, as I couldn't find that perfect team of definite contenders, so here goes nothing...

Matti Breschel (SAX)
Fabian Cancellara (RSN)
Peter Sagan (LIQ)
Bernhard Eisel (SKY)
Filippo Pozzato (LAM)
Luca Paolini (KAT)
Stijn Devolder (RSN)
Michael Schar (BMC)
Maciej Bodnar (LIQ)

Just seen the pics of Boonen, looked really bad at first, obviously in a lot of pain, but at least he was on his feet when he got in the ambulance. Looks like he may be out of Roubaix, then.

Looks like the break of the day....10pts each if they can make it to halfway.

Jetse Bol (Blanco), Jacob Rathe (Garmin-Sharp), Tosh van der Sande (Lotto Belisol), Michael Morkov (Saxo-Tinkoff), Tim De Troyer (Accent Jobs-Wanty), Kevin Claeys (Crelon-Euphony) and
Laurens de Vreese (Topsport Vlaanderen)

I'll be surprised if anyone's got any of those  13

The one person I have that doesn't feature above is Van Avermaet, so fingers crossed on him.

Maybe missed the boat, I switched him out of my purists just before G-W in favour of Phinney - not my best move...

According to the TV, the break had 1:28 at 128km (halfway), so looks like they get the bonus points.

Real shame about Thomas, he looked good, and it was clearly his priority race of the spring.
