To get to Schoten is flat with cobbles.
Mark Cavendish will be the heavy favorite to win tomorrow's Scheldeprijs.
With three victories under his belt, the Omega man will try to break the record he shares with Piet Oellibrandt. He will have his hands full as Marcel Kittel will be defending his title. The out-of-form Kittel will have more to prove as he is battling back from illness. The German sprinter loves this race as his 2011 win shown his mighty talent as one of the world's best rush hour men.
Speaking of rush hour men, Sebastien Turgot fresh from an excellent Ronde (8th) is in top classic form. His goal is this Sunday's Paris-Roubaix and why not warm up with a win in Schoten?
My three dark horses: Juan Antonio Flecha, Arnaud Demare & Tyler Farrar.
