The real question is 'Who will finish second, Froome or Andy?'
Froome: 2nd at TdF '12 and VaE '11
Andy: 2nd at GdI '07 and TdF '09, '10 & '11

Froome or Contador to win this. I'd love to see Andy win it but I'll wait until he shows some good form to start considering him a contender, I haven't lost all hope for him yet. One of the young riders to get 3rd, Tejay or Pinot.

And why is Cobo in the poll? Cobo will go down in history as an anonymous Vuelta winner that never did much else.

No stage in Italy, and no pending suspension. 2013 is this man's year:



Too bad Cobo was part of the poll option

Next year could be the same as the Giro '13; Nibali rides a phenomenal first week, but after that there's just no one around who has any hope of taking time back.
