I predicted in 2017 I'd bitch about the 2019 Tour route in 2018.

I was completely right.

'Well' might be stretching it, but I was happy about my predictions for 2018. Giro was close, and I also had the right idea about the slightly surprising predictions of Thomas and Woods.

Only one interesting question and prediction this year: Will it rain?

Really...don't care about the rest anymore.

We're overdue some snow in the Giro & a wet cold Tour.

Thanks to global warming, this looks a lot less likely...but then again, I remember the Tours 2014-2016 as rainy (at least partly, right? Cobbles and Belles Filles 2014, Plateau de Beille and Pra Loup 2015, Andorra 2016). Can't remember the last snowy Giro though :Neutral: But I would really like to witness a wet Roubaix, something I still haven't had the pleasure of :(
