Not Euskaltel, one of the Izagirre's will certainly win something soon :p

if it were not for cancellara i would say radioshack. They just cant win. They can only get team GC and place two or three riders in the top 15 of any race.

They already got NZL nationals, I think that's why they're not included in the poll

I agree. Argos aren't anywhere near well rounded. Im wondering who they ll be sending to the giro, vuelta, ardennes. All they can do is sprint. They just have kittel (who hasnt managed a decent placing in down under so far) and degenkolb.

Accidentally clicked on Cannondale, wanted to click AG2R.

Argos will pick up a win rather soon with Degenkolb & Kittel.

Harder to decide this year, each team seems to have at least one big name that can get the team a win. I'll go with Euskaltel, the only big name rider they have that can save them from being last team to win is Samu.

Euskaltel and AG2R would seem to be the obivious choices, but I'll go for Astana - no local events and no notable sprinter.

Except from this guy called Guardini, who wins some 15 races a year...

Guardini? He should win a couple stage of Langkawi easily.

I voted for Garmin, i do not know other than Von Hoff who can get a win in a while.

Argos would have been a good vote as well.
I'd agree with you but then we'd both be wrong

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