    I find it hard to believe Pogacar will just keep his win rate going and win pretty much everything he races while racing the entire year & expect him to have to taper off eventually, but the field isn't exactly stacked, so:

    Pogacar please

  • Any race that Pog is in you have to expect him to be there or thereabouts, which makes PTP pretty boring

    So my pick is.........

    Pog please

    16/24 pickers chose the winner, with a couple of Pidcockers picking up points too.

    My hunch that Pogacar was just using this as a leg loosener ahead of Liege turned out to be wildly wrong.
