For me it was

I voted Nibs and Alberto (tour and vuelta)
I think you misunderstood my post, which after reading it I can see why, perhaps it is not clear,

I think of all the cyclists Contador is most likely to win a grand tour, which would be the TDF, however I think it is even more likely that one of the three Grand Tours is going to be won by someone not on the list, I don't know who, after Contador then Wiggins is the most likely to win a grand tour (especially if he does the Giro)

It is very hilarious actually. One of things that interest me most [barring directly racing matters] in the next season is what ideological base will be made up by the fans if Contador will lose the Tour. Apparently, the Hitch will have to rewrite Darwin theory as gazzelles turn into lion; Fleur will slobber and say 'he was not on form'; El Pisti will just fall in silent depression. The rest should percieve such a crook in the lot quietly.

I don't say it will happen. Contador chances are always very high, but.. it is just of out interest.

I picked Contador, Evans and Nibali. It was a purely emotional decision, since they are my 3 favourite GC riders.
