I think Nils Pollit will win today. Never won much if anything but he does appear to be a rider who is continually improving at the cobbled races.
Excellent deduction!  :cool

Shame that the top spot wasn't his, for he was the one responsible for initiating the escape, and the one who caused the winning split. I suppose he had to make a move like that, but it was gutsy and well-timed. Phil was good for some solid pulls of his own (obviously), but it must sting to get so, so close to victory.

Next time he'll likely be more of a marked man, so he may have missed his best shot at the element of surprise. But I hope victory finds him soon. He animated an already very exciting race, and deserves a lot of credit for that.
