Leif Hoste will win a sprint.

Thomas de Gendt will win a spring classic after an attack less than 10k before the finish.

Rodriguez won't finish second in a GT.

A rider under 25 will podium in the Tour.

The prix de combativité won't be for a Frenchman.

Someone in the top 10 of the Tour will win the mountain jersey.

Wouter Vandenhaute will admit that changing the course of the Ronde van Vlaanderen wasn't a good idea.

I wonder why not try Paris Brussel and Paris Tours instead of some minor race. But he has a long season allready doing Down under till Munsterland Giro every year. He seems to be better in stage-races. Maybe he can recover relatively good?

- Dombrowski top 10s Giro helping Wiggins as a neo-pro; Lutsenko wins nothing
- Rebellin has a great year, wins a WT event with a Polish team

These are good ones!


My bold ones:
-Gilbert outsprinted in LBL by Vinokourov. Later a French newspaper claimes Vinokourov bought him a beer and a 60,000 euro watch in Monaco.
-Ulissi wins Fleche Wallone
-Lance decides to make a comeback
-Argos does not get their well deserved WT spot but wins 4 out of 6 sprints in the Tour.
-Bruyneel does not get suspended, which results in a strike during Giro stage 11.
-Pat McQuaid takes a step back.
-Boonen, Boom and Pipo crash on Carrefour and Turgot wins Paris Roubaix outsprinting Hushovd, Ballan, Cancellara and Roelandts. Vanmarcke punctured while riding 15 sec for the lead group on the last cobbled section.
-Lieuwe Westra world champion TT
-Movistar wins TTT (ok its not a bold one but a lot of people seem to think it is)
-Boonen again looses Omloop het Volk and become 2nd.
-Pozzato to win Sanremo again
-Cancellara wins the WC RR with a 40k attack, because the Spanish riders wont cooperate.
-Ryder Hesjedal wins the KOM in france
-Strade Bianche is broadcasted live
-Wiggins wins PN and becomes the subtop GC/TT rider he was for the last years, so thats it in 2013.
-Cadel starts MTB training again for Rio 2016
-the French teams join forces so there is actually one decent French WT team.

Canc to target the ardennes classics, bury himself on an attack gifting someone else the win, and not even finish top 5. His legacy will become a cliché and pulling a spartacus will be a euphemism for an extremely talented rider with comically bad tactical sense
