I think that will not happen. One article i read said as he was getting pulled away in the ambulance he flipped the bird to the media.

@Wigwan, Jens Attacks and LS got some pretty good picks last year.

Bold predictions
Cavendish not get dropped on the Poggio and go on to win the bunch sprint (too bad that Cancellara, Sagan, and Nibali had already made it to the finish in a breakaway)

Evans to enter the tour as BMC's leader only to have Tejay attack him and everyone else to win the first MTF stage and end up on the podium.

Tony Martin to podium in a GT.

Wiggins to have no motivation and enter the Giro out of form, get dropped in the mountains, and get beaten in the TT...by Joaquim rodriguez.

Andy Schleck to win the Tour
by 5 minutes

Slightly more realistic predictions
Gilbert to do the Ardennes triple, win paris tour, Lombardia, a handfull of stages and defend his rainbow stripes, thus putting a end to the curse of the rainbow jersey.

Nibali to win the Giro.
Rodriguez to win his first GT.
Cance to win Flanders and Roubaix

Nice one

Contador, Schleck, Teejay, Pinot and Rolland to drop Froome on one of the major mountain stages. Thus ending the hype.

Maybe he can do it if he switches to sign language?
