Kelly’s picks for the 2012 spring classics
Sean Kelly, a nine-time winner of the sport’s monuments, gives his picks for the upcoming spring classics season.
Tour of Flanders
“The way the race is going I would see somebody else winning, maybe not one of the big favorites. Sylvain Chavanel. Why not?”
“I think it’s very difficult to go past Cancellara. I think Hushovd will be there, hanging onto his wheel.”
La Flèche Wallone
“I’m thinking Valverde would be one you could see wining that, but so is Cadel Evans… Valverde, Evans, Cunego.”
“I will go for Philippe Gilbert.”
