Liege - Bastogne - Liege --- Head to head
Vanendert is making the next step after his great season last year. Back then he was enabling Gilbert to make his results by working hard and letting Phil finish it off. After his Tour stage-win last year and the departure of Gilbert, Vanendert now is rising up and showing his promise that he had as youth rider, his carreer was downed by injuries so far.
Voeckler is of course a special guy, but you feel he has to choose the attack, and most escapees are cought back in this race, and Vanendert should be in that small peloton that goes to together to the final climb(s). The call is Vanendert to last much longer and get top10 sport ... most likely . GL
