Basso agrees with this poll: "Asked to make a prediction for the best rider of 2013, Basso picked Alberto Contador for stage races and teammate Peter Sagan for the classic."

Berto will win the Tour and Vuelta......

Giro is a toss up but probably not Wiggo I don't think he'll win another GT

Sagan will pick up lots of wins nut with his new found support and Specialised bikes Cav will dominate sprints again whenever he wants to.

Boonen will take the Cobbled season again possibly Astana and their gay blue outfits or Sagan the Hilly Classics. Much depends on Purito's invites!

Phil Gilbert will want to show off his new stripey jumper, I think the curse will return and he'll have a poor season!
I'm in shape...Round is a shape
Unashamed Contador Fanboy

I voted Valverde, he will be the most consistent rider during the season, which does not mean dominant in one aspect but over the season.
All the other rides could dominate as well but in certain aspects.
Cancellara will have the most impressive rides and Tony Martin shall again win a lot of one week stage races.
I'd agree with you but then we'd both be wrong

It's not the size of the dog in the fight, it's the size of the fight in the dog

The Grand Boucle wasn't just Europe's for the taking.
