Here are my predictions for 2013.

Tour of Qatar.... Cav
Paris Nice.... Porte
Milan San Remo.... Moser
Flanders.... Thomas
Paris Roubaix.... Stannard
LBL... Quintana
Giro.... Wiggo
San Sebastian.... Gasparotto
Paris Tours.... Stannard
Beijing.... Tony Martin again (who else).

Please don't pester me for the winners of the TDF, Vuelta or the Tour of Denmark yet as I am yet to decide.

- Sky will have a horrible year. Particularly the british will underperform, with Wiggins dropping out of the Giro and Froome barely managing to get into the top 10 in the TDF. Their season will only somewhat be saved by Henao podiuming in the Vuelta, EBH winning AGR and Dombrowski winning Dauphine.

- Sagan doesn't win anything in the first half of the season and later admits that he's been partying and signing boobs instead of training. Comes back in form for worlds and wins the sprint for 2nd behind Cancellara who wins solo.

- Cancellara wins M-SR, RVV, P-R and Worlds RR.

You forgot the full line - Schleck to attack once, look behind him after 10 seconds and promptly give up

Sorry, I know you are Pistoleros number one fan, but I think the more likely prediction is that he tests positive again and/or Bjarnes past catches up and Saxobank folds mid season.

Yup. Just like your prediction last year that Ryder wouldn't top 5 Il Giro

That's just why the thread's title isn't '2013 likely predictions'

My predictions:
> total destruction of classics field by Boasson
> Rabobank returns to cycling halfway through the season
> Valverde will race in Italy, winning at least Worlds and Lombardia
> Cav doesn't get any sprint victory in the Tour, but wins a mountain stage in a break with Greipel
> Gilbert gets in better form than in 2011 and wins whatever B Hagen doesn't win
> OPQS get less than 50 victories
> Leipheimer, Danielson and Zabriskie have at least 5 victories each
> Cobo wins something
> Someone under the age of 21 will win a WT race or stage c.q. starting a new Moser/Sagan-like hype

Next year could be the same as the Giro '13; Nibali rides a phenomenal first week, but after that there's just no one around who has any hope of taking time back.

> G Thomas to dominate on the cobbles
> Voigt, Horner and Rebellin to get in a breakaway together somewhere and have a good laugh about the past
> Lutsenko to not win a race
> TJVG totally fails to get a 2012 like season
> Kittel to win 75%+ bunch sprints at le Tour
> Cav to not whine after a sprint loss
