Default The last country without a victory?

Similar to the polls for teams and riders, which of these ten countries will be the last to get a victory this year?

I voted for Kazakhstan, although I forgot about Valentin Iglinskiy. Not that he's usually all that prolific outside the Asian races anyway. They probably have to rely on Maxim Iglinskiy giving a damn, or an early breakthrough for Alexey Lutsenko.

My other candidates are Denmark, Portugal and Poland. Denmark can hope for Matti Breschel being back in form, or a sh*t small French stage race win for Andre Steensen or Lasse B°chman. I assume Rui Costa will win something along the way, and for some reason I expect Michal Kwiatkowski to win a time trial biased flattish/hilly stage race.

If not, there's always the national championships.

... but he's also a noted winner, from his U23 years.

Ok, he'll likely have a better shot at a victory than any Kazakh or S-African. But the Luxies should be one of the contenders here.
