While Wout van Aert might be in "pole position" for the Tour of Flanders, Tadej Pogačar and Mathieu van der Poel both have a strong chance of winning, according to Johan Musueeuw.

Speaking to Cycling Weekly during a "busy and hectic" week, the three-time Ronde winner said that the winner could be a "big tour winner like Pogačar", something not seen since the days of Eddy Merckx.
