I didn't want this to turn in to one of those stupid threads where people make unrealistic predictions.

Yeah, if they end up cancelling Roche-au-Faucons and Saint-Nicolas and instead put in Col de Garde, he could win a few. Also if they move the race to february and give it a .1 status.

I'll go with '4' as my answer.

Since he's 28 (?) I would say about 10 or 11 if Endura is invited this year.

Seventeen minus however many Kelderman rides.
The gain is again a seven second gain for EvGAINy Berzin - Phil Liggett

Pf, I just came here to take the plss, but the interview with Brian Smith linked in the OP is pretty inspiring.

Stick me down for 5 LBL, 2 Fleche and a Vuelta ;)

He's only 27, so I reckon there's scope for 11 or 12. I think he'll only win 4 though, after a long Kolobnev-like streak of 2nd places.

Guys, I know its a joke thread, but if we could soften it up a bit maybe and have a few posters arguing that while Tiernan Locke isnt going to win 10 LBL's, its very possible that he will challenge Gilbert in upcoming Lbls and in this years worlds, El Pistolero will go bat ****:p
