Similar to the polls for teams and riders, which of these ten countries will be the last to get a victory this year?

I voted for Kazakhstan, although I forgot about Valentin Iglinskiy. Not that he's usually all that prolific outside the Asian races anyway. They probably have to rely on Maxim Iglinskiy giving a damn, or an early breakthrough for Alexey Lutsenko.

My other candidates are Denmark, Portugal and Poland. Denmark can hope for Matti Breschel being back in form, or a sh*t small French stage race win for Andre Steensen or Lasse Bøchman. I assume Rui Costa will win something along the way, and for some reason I expect Michal Kwiatkowski to win a time trial biased flattish/hilly stage race.

If not, there's always the national championships. :D

Ok, he'll likely have a better shot at a victory than any Kazakh or S-African. But the Luxies should be one of the contenders here. :D

Reinardt Janse van Rensburg has a better shot then winning then Jungels imo. Kazachs also have several riders that can win a race. Jungels is certainly a big talent but I dont see him win (much) races this year.

Don't really think they count. Obviously each country will have a winner of their own championships! :p
I've long been a bit confused by the fact that CAS can refer to both:
Court of Arbritation for Sport.
and Chris Anker Sørensen.

From Vinoland, we got the Iglinskys, Lutsenko, mybe Bazayev and Zeits that are "probable" winners this year.

I'll say Poland, could just as easily be Kazakhstan or South Africa though.
And why is Switzerland on this poll? It won't be long before Spartacus starts killing everybody. :D

Is his schedule known yet? Might find it a little more difficult to get wins in the world tour.

I voted Denmark- though Bak or Breschel could pick up a win soon.

What about Slovenia?
I'd agree with you but then we'd both be wrong

Meh, they'll all pick up a win mid to late June I expect.
...[Walsh] thinks we're ahead of the curve. But think about it for a sec. We're building long-lasting, trusting relationships with people who are spending a lot of money - Coke, Nike, Subaru. If we're f***ing lying, we can kiss it all goodbye. And if we were lying we'd do some stupid stuff to try to cover it up, wouldn't we? Does anybody think for a second that a secret that big wouldn't come out? Bill Stapleton
