Edvald Boasson Hagen does not need to fuse with JTL to become unstoppable in the monuments.

Lieuwe Westra to go PN-mode the entire season and pull a Wiggins, except attacking all the time instead of hiding behind Froome. Rujano will pull a Froome on Westra though.

Froome and Valverde are the only 2 on the list I cannot imagine dominating.

Valverde will have to battle it out with Gilbert in the Ardennes, who is (as Jens Attacks' climbing times show too) simply better on hills.

I do not know about Froome, but between a Contador and Wiggins (who is still leader) I find it hard to see him dominate.

Wiggo will have to deal with stronger competition, and Cancellara will have to change his racing style.

I think Cancellara will dominate the spring classics again and finally become WC, while Contador wins every stage race he enters, including TDF and Vuelta.

Wiggins will underperform and blame his lack of motivation and/or alchoholism whilst Froome will underperform and blame his bilharzia

Perhaps the former Other/Vino-option should be changed to Other/Machado, now that Vino is officially retired ?

Expect that Vino actually won some races.
