The usual fast men of the one day races I suppose...so apart from the two you mentioned Bettini, Van Petegem, Valverde, O'Grady, Zabel and even Vainstains and perdiguero. I wouldn't have put O'Grady in that list up until this year, but what a season he's had!

If the race is hard then I don't think one of the 'real' sprinters stands a chance, even if they manage to hang on. Cfr. Petacchi in Paris-Tours and Milan-Sanremo. I'm not so sure Ballerini will take him along anyway. :)
