Are you counting most predictions for 2nd place for a rider or the 2nd most predicted winner? I assume the former

Only the former. Unfortunately, I have no idea how to make formula for the second most frequently occurring word in range. :D :D

Might be wrong but think it's a 0 for the forum again. Shows even with all our great knowledge how difficult some of these races are to predict. When we will someone get it right ... Gotta keep the faith and say Sagan in Flanders

You are right. Kiwi 2 : Forum 0 :D
We are lucky Kiwi is not riding RVV. (Just joking)

Actually, the forum can easily lose in RVV prediction too. There are only 6 names chosen. Sagan, GVA, Boonen, Degenkolb Terpstra, Kristoff. In monument, anything can happen. :D

Stannard to pull a Hayman on the Boonen fairy tale in the velodrome.

the Sky bus assaulted by fans with rocks and molotovs. Sky to pull out of Ardennes races for fear.

Well at least I nailed the Giro.

Last 2 names you have a few errors in the order of the last races.

Or Dylan Groenewegen is gonna win Lombardia. Makes perfect sense.
