Then there's a certain current Avenir winner...

But of course the glory of Roche, Bennati or Breschel outhshines them all. :p


What did Degenkolb do but win a couple of races with no competition?

Current Avenir winner? Yeah, we haven't had enough crappy Avenir winners in the WT I suppose. We need another one.

- Lotto-Belisol: they have no one anymore besides Greipel. They're a victim of the WT system.

- Argos-Shimano: Their team is crap and Cavendish will beat Kittel most of the time.

- Euskaltel: Probably the worst WT team. Only Samu Sanchez can ride good results and maybe Igor Anton.

FDJ: Bad team, they only have Arnoud Demare and Pinot.


+ Cannondale, besides Sagan either Moser(too young) or Basso(too old).

And Lotto is a victim of itself, it's up to their sponsors to get better riders, Meersman had every right to leave.

I'm desperately hoping Saxo will still get their Tour invite, despite some worrying rumours. Contador deserves the 100th like no other.

Lotto won the WT in 2011 and sacrificed the whole team to support Gilbert. They should've gotten half his points, but that's just my opinion on the WT system...

He was 4th on the Worlds, while Boonen for example didn't even make the top ten. He's Argos's most valuable rider in terms of points and future results. Kittel is nowhere near him, he gets dropped everywhere and he can't handle longer races. If big John rode in another team Argos wouldn't even be considered for WT ofc.

Oleg Tinkov and his big mouth won't get a WT license? That's too bad.

I really like Contador, but I really dislike his idiot team owner.

edit: okay, turns out it's Katusha.
