GLombardia: 1° Moser 2° J Rod° 3° Chaves

MVR: Sagan
Rookieoftheyear: Dombrowski

Nice year in the classics. Battle between the two kings of the North and the new stars . Surprises in the Ardennes, the confrontation between Gilbert, Sagan, Valverde and J Rod will be interrupt by guys like Moser, Vanendert or Betancur.
We'll see a huge Giro D'Italia fight. Wiggins vs Nibali part2 and the domination of Quintana in the Dolomites. Super MT's stages inspired by the colombians, plus Rujano or
Amador and the locals. In France the worst route of the last years will be forgotten. Contador will face to face with the more difficult opponents of his career. Froome in the ITT's, Pinot and Andy Schleck in the Alpes, Sky will be a nightmare for Alberto. In July Contador need another exploit. 2013 is the renaissance of cycling. Another view of this "modern sport" change into classic thanks for legends like Contador and Boonen, emergent stars and the best generation of youngsters of the decade.
