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.


Sorry, you are right. I mixed it up. I am going to correct.

BTW congratulation to Dumounlin . You were the one and only with the correct tip. :)

Something about broken, delusional clocks
Veni, Vidi, Kirby

I came, I saw, I was dead wrong as per usual

Lmao, look who's back.

Plenty really believed in the Tour-Vuelta double though early on. I guess it wasn't that far fetched anyway considering the amount of 2nd places Froome already had.

My classics predictions were terrible but my GTs were pretty good, 6/9 correct podium mentions. I just got the wrong Dutchman at the Giro, missed Uran and said Aru would come 3rd instead of Zakarin. I also swapped Froome and Nibali and said Bardet would finish 2nd, which was also pretty close. So in reality 1/3 were right. Overall 3/14, which isn't great. It will probably be 3/16 too.

Are you up for doing a bigger prediction game next year?

Probably, it could be fun. Small CN forum competition. But I am not sure if people would be interested in filling up so many names in one time.
Probably I will start with the same races on the beginning of the year and few days before the races (these and also the minor ones) I ask for the prediction for winner and podium. The final result will be the combination of points from tips from beginning + points for predictions from actual races.

You have a box of good Tokay wine as a price. You just have to come to Slovakia. :)

Putting Sagan everywhere for the spring classics is just playing the odds, lol.

Actually, you still have only half of the box. Uran still can make it. :)

God, please...one more. What a beauty that would be. Ending the drought in Lombardia with a deserving successor to Gilles Delion ('nuf said)...

Only I can say: Good luck. Finger crossed.
I like great little TP.
And I do believe that ending these "old droghts" is something that cycling desperatly needs. Especially in TDF and PR.
Medness caused by Sagan in Slovakia, changed cycling from marginal sport to mainstreem. Here it literaly saves the lives as the whole generation of fat fortyishs bought the bykes and went out cycling instead of sitting in pub drinking bear. Including me :)
I wish every country gets his Sagan, Kwiatko, Froome, Dumoulin ....
I love this sport and I wish its popularity comes back where it was 50 years ago. I wish people start knowing the sport like some of you here on CN forum, not as boring 10 min. action sport and long video commercial of France.
Howk. Amen.
