Fearless and peerless Phil.
Hit tip top form in March and held it until the leaves fell off.

Even managed to hang around with the climbers until late, on some of the big Tour climbs.

Then he got touched by BMC's magic winning wand and his teeth fell out.

Err, that would be 2011, too.
Philbert's reign didn't last long.

I vote for Wiggins this season, just because it left the biggest impression, I mean trauma, on me. The feeling that he would win every race he enter since the 2nd PN stage (except the Olympic) was unbearable, all season long. I even thought he would somehow win ToB

I have a feeling the teeth could be back in in Spring 2013.

Lead out for Swift on the flats, lead out for JTL on the hills. Ideal.
