Giro: 1. Froome 2. Dumoulin 3. Pinot
Tour: 1. Nibali 2. Froome 3. Landa
Vuelta: 1. Quintana 2. Landa 3. Aru

While Strade Bianche is an incredible new race on the calendar, I bet most people would still say the real stuff begins at Omloop in the Belgian opening weekend. Strange thing to declare Strade Bianche the start of the season IMO.

Of all the predictions I have seen, Bernal finishing 3rd in the Vuelta is the one I like the most. I mean, its not THAT unlikely..
