I said he will win the WCRR and podium at the TDF.

I shall also add T-A.

Thor Hushovd to win Paris Roubaix.

Also what about Geraint Thomas.

First multiquote for me as well.

@Afrank i like that idea but i doubt Phinney would be able to even have that option. It would be GVA, Gilbert or Ballan.
lol that's a mistake. Meant to say Sagan wins AGR, not RVV and in that case, Gilbert won't win the Ardenees triple

Christina Watches receive a shock invitation to the Tour de France which is led by Michael Rasmussen until the penultimate stage when he is disqualified for a new kind of blood doping involving injecting the blood of a chicken.

A Sky or Garmin rider, albeit not a big name test positive, provoking Astana directeur Vinokourov to slate Brailsford/Vaughters publicly over how their teams are run and threaten to join a breakaway league run by guru of clean cycling Tyler Hamilton.

And possibly the most unlikely of all, Euskaltel become a sprint/classics superteam with their new foreigners ripping up the sprints and a reformed Igor Anton winning Paris-Roubaix, causing Mark Cavendish to beg for a spot on the team for 2014 citing broken promises at Omega.

Bold predictions...some predictions are not really that bold..

Let me try some BOLD predictions:
-Quintana to podium a GT
-Van Avermaet wins the Amstel Gold Race
-'team former Rabobank' to finish 1st at the World Tour ranking
