Vincezo Nibali makes history and joins Anquetil, Gimondi, Merckx, Hinault and Contador as only the 6th winner of all Three Grand Tours! Bravo Lo Squalo!

Giro: tough on, maybe Haesjedal, Tour: Albert, Vuelta: Valverde; for tschechischen fans: Kreuziger top 5 (at least) at Giro.

If you had to put money on it you would put Other first, Contador second and Wiggins third.

You are funny

I also love how some people think Alberto will not win the tour but will win la vuelta while that will be 10000 times harder to win for him because of so many purito finishes

I voted Nibs and Alberto (tour and vuelta)

This is how's going to be.
Evans will win the Giro.
Contador will suffer an early loss in the Tour and try to make it up on Ax-3-Domaines, but he'll be eaten by the group of favorites and spat 3 minutes back. By the Alpe d' Huez he'll be fighting for top 10, and on Semnoz he'll fall back to 17. Already during the race, which will be won by Schleck, Contador starts to drink out of depression. Riis sacks him, due to indiscipline, so he's not even able to defend his Vuelta title. This chain of events results with overweight Contador thinking about retirement. But salvation comes from his archenemy - Schleck. The Tour victory secured a wealthy long term contract to RSNT, so they decided to strengthen their squad. After another one disappointing spring campaign for Cancellara, during which Devolder did it again in De Ronde (finishing with a cigar in his mouth and demi in his hand) and Boonen coming to velodrom in Roubaix riding backwards, they (RSNT) decide to hire this new, overweight, Contador as Cancellara's superdomestique for cobbles. Contador, out of gratitude, names his kid "Andy".
That's in brief.

P.S.
Froome will finally win Vuelta if anyone cares.

Exactly, Froome must go to the Giro, Wiggo to the Tour as defending champ (whatever that means). Why does Chris have to go through humiliation by Wiggins, Sky in the Tour?

Giro 2013 is THE Tour.
