Only for 2013... NOT "up until now" or whatever.

Martin, Tony.
Cancellara is like The Black Album. Really good but way overrated.

Tony and Wiggo, will be the top #2 and I lean towards Tony.

Fabian to be there or thereabouts but just a step back, as will Froome.

Tony Martin. It's what he does best and he will retain focus. He doesn't seem to be talking GTs or cobbled classics. So all for the TT for him

Martin. Both Wiggins and Froome will take a step down from 2012, the Sky banner year.

Martin to crush both TDF tts (No Canc) but Spartacus to make it 5 in Florence.

Taylor Phinney. Martin won't be far off though and no one will be able to dominate the time trial scene.

I think Phinney will take yet another step up. Even though it's not really possible without winning the Worlds, which I don't think he will. I'm confident that he'll be named as a top 3 best time trialist after 2013, though.

Martin. Then Phinney, Cancellara then Durbridge.
I'd agree with you but then we'd both be wrong

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

Martin, if in 2011 shape.
Cancellara, if he's riding like in 2009/10.
Phinney if he improves on last year.
Dennis, Durbridge, no.
Westra, hell no.
