Philippe Gilbert, 2011 was the year of the Belgian Philippe Gilbert. He became Belgian champion and has won several major races, including the Liege-Bastogne-Liege and the first stage of the Tour de France. Gilbert is still in shape and so is an angry customer for the world title.
Thor Hushovd won the World Cup last year and this year is a good season going. Hushovd won two stages in the Tour and will be keen to follow up on himself. The advantage is that he can run without stress because he won last year.
The other man in the form Boasson Hagen. He also won two stages in the Tour de France and then also Eneco tour.In addition, Boasson Hagen is a very strong all-round and can win both sprints group and hilly arrivals.
