The winner of Milan-San Remo to be someone who did well at the Tour Down Under, either who won a bunch of sprints or won the overall.

Greipel to race other races than small crap sprinter races and the Tour, and actually go for the win in them.

Mario Cipollini to make his long awaited comeback to cycling and go head to head with Mark Cavendish and finally settle the question, who is the greatest sprinter in history.

Tylar Farrar to win a classic

- Cavendish won't win a single race, the Germans will annihilate him all year long in every bunch sprint.
- Vanmarcke and Boom will destroy all competition in the cobbles classics and White Label will be nr 1 team of the spring.
- Basso and Nibali will drop Wiggins in every mountain stage of the Giro
- Froome will leave Contador behind in the mountains in the Tour and wins easily
- Moser wins the WC RR
- Purito wins the Vuelta and starts smoking cigars during the final stages as an early celebration
- Gesink won't crash once in the Tour
- Andy Schleck will start in a few races without finishing them and announces he will be ready for the tour in 2014.
- Voeckler gets caught for using EPO and the ASO reacts by legalizing all medicines and substances.

Now they're bold.
Actually, all those predictions are very reasonable.
