I just want to see the climbers teach Wiggo and Sky a lesson.
And make them cry :D.

Thor Hushovd to enter PR in the best form of his life only to see Taylor Phinney ride away for the win.

Wiggins will have a disaster at the giro and therefore enter le tour to make up for it but lack of team cohesion ruins both his and froomes GC aspirations.

He however saves his season by winning the World Champs road race and TT double

How can Sagan win RVV but also lose it to Boonen.
Also what about Geraint Thomas.

First multiquote for me as well.

@Afrank i like that idea but i doubt Phinney would be able to even have that option. It would be GVA, Gilbert or Ballan.
I'd agree with you but then we'd both be wrong

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

All the predictions about Evans have been negative so far. I say he will win a big one day race, such as Liege, WCRR or GdL.:)

Oh Ye of little faith, it will be just like 2011 with Van Summeren. Phinney will go in the break so BMC won't have to do any work. Hushovd will think OMPQ, Radioshack, and other teams will Chase it down. But Phinney will ride like he's possessed, keep the break going all by himself and win by 3 minutes. :D

He will then go on to win the worlds TT.

I said he will win the WCRR and podium at the TDF.

I shall also add T-A.

lol that's a mistake. Meant to say Sagan wins AGR, not RVV and in that case, Gilbert won't win the Ardenees triple :D

Christina Watches receive a shock invitation to the Tour de France which is led by Michael Rasmussen until the penultimate stage when he is disqualified for a new kind of blood doping involving injecting the blood of a chicken.

A Sky or Garmin rider, albeit not a big name test positive, provoking Astana directeur Vinokourov to slate Brailsford/Vaughters publicly over how their teams are run and threaten to join a breakaway league run by guru of clean cycling Tyler Hamilton.

And possibly the most unlikely of all, Euskaltel become a sprint/classics superteam with their new foreigners ripping up the sprints and a reformed Igor Anton winning Paris-Roubaix, causing Mark Cavendish to beg for a spot on the team for 2014 citing broken promises at Omega.

These are not bold at all compared to this:
