The 2009 Tour of Flanders promises to be a fascinating race with Tom Boonen favourite to take the race win. Boonen has made it clear he sees this as one of this main targets for the season, something that has been brought into focus even more with consistent loses to Mark Cavendish in sprint finishes.
Devolder and Hoste have been missing so far this season – the Tour of Flanders provides them with the perfect stage to bring their season alive. Cancellara at 34.00 (33/1) is an interesting possible bet but it is likely he will be keeping his powder dry for next weekend’s Paris-Roubaix, following his recent injury problems.
Velotips does see a win for Tom Boonen although there may be value in an each-way bet on Greg Van Avermaet.
