2011 Paris - Roubaix - What the Bookies Think
Fabian Cancellara is installed the short price favourite. The odds for Paris-Roubaix from Sportingbet Australia.

Who will win the 2011 Paris Roubaix? Sportingbet Australia, http://www.sportingbet.com.au have the market up for the race.

Fabian Cancellara is favourite to defend his title @ $2.10. His main challengers are Tom Boonen @ $5 and Thor Hushovd at $7. With the next best rider, Sylvain Chavanel @ $21, the bookies think it's a three horse race.

Cancellara was in brilliant touch last week when he launched that attack from the peloton 50km from home. Tom Boonen has been quietly going about his business but Quick-Step need a result. So do Garmin-Cervelo who have been virtually non-existent this classics campaign. Can Hushovd or Haussler ($26) turn their fortunes around?

George Hincapie is listed @ $34. Can the veteran finally achieve his Paris-Roubaix goal after years of bad luck? With BMC showing their strong presence in last week's Tour of Flanders, he is a good chance to take victory.

Italian Filippo Pozzato $26 is under pressure to perform with Katusha directeur sportif Serge Parsani saying that Pozzato needs to deliver results as Katusha's leader. Will Pozzato respond to the pressure and deliver a memorable win?

Who do you think will win? Put your money where your mouth is. Here are the odds.
