I am surprised that most people are not saying Gilbert will win AGR, even though we saw him dominate it at the WC.
I'd agree with you but then we'd both be wrong

He posted this in Bold prediction thread:

Dekker_Tifosi wrote:Bold predictions...some predictions are not really that bold..

Let me try some BOLD predictions:
-Quintana to podium a GT
-Van Avermaet wins the Amstel Gold Race
-'team former Rabobank' to finish 1st at the World Tour ranking


So I think he has some realistic expectations for next season :D But seriously I'd like to see his real predictions.

Cav to have more than 20 wins next year.

I think that curse has been gone for a few years now, Hushovd had a pretty good season in the rainbow jersey, especially during the tour, and Cav also had a pretty decent year!

Im pretty sure that we will have a Norwegian Paris-Roubaix victory, finally. Thor vs Edvald

It's faded in the last few years but I wouldn't say it has gone away completely. Thor had a great later season but he sucked at his biggest goal, Roubaix. And Cav had a good season winning a good number of races but his biggest goals, Olympics, MSR, and green jersey, he failed to win.

So, Phil will be the one to finally rid the peloton of it :D.

Hushovd's 2011 Roubaix was probably his best ever. Matched every one of Cancellara's attacks except for the final surprise attack. But at that point he already knew Vansummeren, his teammate, had won the race. He didn't crash once or have a flat tire in that race if I remember correctly.

And Cavendish has failed at Milan-San Remo for 3 straight years now. Hardly a curse of the rainbow.
