Ardennes Classics

Today will take place the first of the Ardennes Classics.
After the hard races on the cobbles, the scenery will change and the competitors too. There is only one rider that could win the classics of the Ardennes too, which is Sagan, but he won't be there because he is a human being too (maybe) and he needs some rest after the hard stones campaign.
Some of the riders that will compete in these races are the same that will battle in the Grand Tours. In modern cycling not so many riders can have in their palmarès a Classic and a Grand Tour. These races are almost the only occasion for a Grand Tour rider to reach this dream and this make them even more interesting.
Last year Valverde enriched his palmarès, establishing himself as one of the most complete riders of the peloton.
Will, this year, a Grand Tour rider win one of the Ardennes Classics?
