Moser will win the WC
Schleck will finish a race
A race that doesn't give an attacker the chance to finish it off alone is not a race anymore.

Wiggins to get through an interview with an average of less than 2.5 swearwords per minute

Wiggins crashes out of Giro, Froome crashes out of Tour.

Andy Schleck busted for doping at the Tour, while in a podium position behind Contador.

Boonen wins M-S-R (thanks to Cavendish).

Sagan wins Paris-Roubaix as everyone marks Canc & Boonen.

Valverde wins Vuelta, only to promptly be accused of doping by a livid and foul-mouthed Wiggins.

Love these predictions. :D

- Gesink to win La Vuelta.
- Wiggins to retire as he's taken to an anger management clinic.
- T. Martin will win Dauphiné by 1 sec.
- Froome is found to be a real bio hazard after testing positive for radioactivity.
- A French to win Le Tour, not sure if it's Pinot or Rolland.

Gilbert to dominate at the Ardennes again (at least 2).
GVA will have a falling out with BMC.
Cancellara/ Boonen to win 1 cobbled monument each.
EBH, Sagan, Degenkolb or Goss to win M-SR.
Cav to win G-W.
Cadel Evans to podium at the TDF, ride great at the Ardennes in support of Gilbert then beat Gilbert and Nibali...at the WC (ably assisted by Gerrans, Porte and Clarke).
Speaking of Nibali i shall now say he shall win the Giro, as Wiggins may not be able to start training for a while and i think Nibali can climb just a little better than Hesjedal (who i like a lot). De Gendt shall top 5 in one GT and win Paris Nice.
Porte shall do what Froome did and at the Giro be stronger than Wiggins.
Kruiswijk will do well at a GT.
Basso will go better than he did this year.
Sagan will get the first yellow jersey at the TDF.
Moser will kick-*** at whatever GT he rides.
I'd agree with you but then we'd both be wrong

The Grand Boucle wasn't just Europe's for the taking.

Quote:VAE
"Has Porte ever dropped Nibali in any mountain?"
D&C "He will soon..."
