Default Who Had The Best Season In The Last 5 Years?

Season 2008-2012.

Discuss.

I wonder who will be the first to whine about thread with a poll. Some people need to chill and take a bear like Ullrich.

Anyway yeah POLL!!!!

This is hard btw. I think it's between Contador '08, Gilbert '11 and Contador '09.

I'm gonna go with Contador '08.

Edit: Can a mod change the title? Forgot to put in 'had', i don't think i can change it myself

As a fangirl my duty is to vote for Alberto so I did. But I must say Phil 2011 is imo the best season in the last 5 years. But I hate phil and I love Alberto

And I must add that next year Alberto will make this poll irrelevant. There will be no doubt about who is the best or who had the best season. He will win every race he starts And he will win me cq game 2013.

Between Phil 2011 and Wiggins 2012. Possibly Phil just edges it out due to his sheer quantity of wins.
They both accomplished all they were met with. Though Phil did not retain his Lombardia crown (though it was unrealistic considering the length of his season).

Winning 2 Gts in one years though takes some doing so Contador 08 also deserves a mention.
