You covered all bases with that. However the probability they will all occur is low. Basically the bottom two can happen but without the win. Liquigas can live up to its potential and Levi can assert himself in a GT, but they cannot get the wins if Andy and Alberto win a GT each (Giro for Pellizotti and Levi will be in California). But good work covering the bases in case one does not eventuate.

What I want to see:

Lance and Trek getting spanked by Lemond and his legal team in court.

Lance and Bruyneel get caught with their pants at their ankles and the Shack booted off the Tour mid race. One can hope!

Evans to ride and do well at the Giro.

An all Spanish podium at the TdF, Contador, Sanchez, Valverde and Sastre. Don't care what order, but prefer Contador FTW.

Haussler to ride in an Aussie jersey in Geelong and win the WC.

Cavendish to be beaten or in a non event, let one of his teammates, Greipel, Renshaw, I don't care who, win a stage at the Tour. HTC are greedy and Stapleton needs his nose knocked out of joint. Cav loosing would be tops!

TV wise, Liggett to be shown the door or told to stop the Lance love in. Matthew Keenan (if he can forgo the drama and pants wetting when Cadel is up for a win) to replace him. Nothing personal, but the bias from Liggett has gone on long enough. Neutrality is needed. Phil cannot and will not do this anymore, so bye bye.

Phil was a bit of a hipocrit thought telling matt off as he wets himself when lance wins or does something. When Lance pees on the side of the road phil comments on how good he is. :D

Oh, I'd also like to see "The Cobra" fail miserably. Either that, or getting caught doping again and being suspended for life. =D
same, he is an arrogant pricck...

- Hincapie wins P-R (and pigs will then fly out of my a$$)
- Farrar beats Cav heads up at least three times
- Cadel wins the TdF (yes I have ravaged the guy in the past, but his worlds win softened me to him plight)
- Wiggins finishes 12th in the Tour
- Basso gets busted ("It was my first time" defense angers me more than complete denial)
- Armstrong finishes 8th in the Tour (his only result close to winning anything during the year) or gets busted (with Pat McOstrich at the helm of the UCI, the latter will never happen, but here is to wishing!)
- The Giro not ending up being disgraced by a drug scandal for one of the podium finishers. It is by far the best GT and deserves an unblemished year.
- EBH wins a classic and podiums at P-R
- Someone in Spain grows a set and starts to shut down the doping rings.
+1 A great wish list...

Only one - for Armstrong NOT to ride, saving us all from his embarrassing excuses and snide remarks, so that we can focus on something newsworthy next year.
The same, look at the clinic, filled with armstrong threads... it would get rid of stupid posters such as Naglas Hombre... (who gave me 5 more PM's yesterday)

P.s. If any gets a post for him report it and put him on ignore...

I'd like to see:

• Haussler redeemed at MSR
• Spartacus taking the Ronde
• Hincapie to win another semi-classic in a break
• Edvald Boassen-Hagen taking Roubaix
• Evans to win Amstel
• The Schlecklet taking LBL again
• Another great Giro
• An outsider winning the Tour

and in non-racing news...

• An independent body testing all major races
• Lance to shut up and ride, making it actually, "just about the bike"

he's not riding it...

Muddy muddy P-R is a great call. And while Horner and Levi can't use Grecian, maybe they can get Hair Club for Men too.

Not too many crashes though. I don't want it to end like this years P-R. It was a real decrescendo to what was looking like to be a really exciting finsh.

MORE RACING- LESS DRAMA & B.S.

It wouldn't be recognizable as pro cycling without the drama and B.S.

And secondly:
*Haussler/Hushov to win a classic
*The emerging of someone who gets to challege Cavendish
*A successful Giro for Sastre
*Andy & Alberto fighting the TDF title to the last breath
*Cadel Evans to get a GT title aside from the tour
*the arising of names like Nibali,Kreuziger & Gesink
*A good tour for Wiggins

Sky/Shack/Garmin/Saxo to show up and play big.
Astana to fade, except that AC makes a run at the Tour.
LA to win the Tour.
Hincapie to win P-R.
Cav to do well but not quite as well, proving he needed Hincapie.
Cancellara to surprise in a random sampling of unlikely situations.
Jens Voigt to make it look like nothing happened.
Nobody goes off a mountain, prangs a barrier, gets run over by the Commissar, or otherwise loses a year or more to avoidable havoc.

Okay, cool--didn't know his schedule. Seemed a race he should contest, and hasn't he taken crap for his rides there before?

Like to see him win something again, but not the Tour. Can't take the voice for three weeks.

You probably won't be able to take my gloating for the rest of the year either...

A couple of REALLY good wishes here ....

and I concur with a few, like:
- Georgie to win P-R

But here is a few more

- Robbie McEwen to make a major comeback and win a few sprints again from Cav.

- Someone to cuff Bob Roll's hands to his ankles so we don't have to watch those elaborate hand-talking while on TV

- Some institution/agency to SPEED up processing of blood/urine samples - so to catch offenders way quicker and get rid of them
 
I wish that

-There's a retirement home in every city where the TdF stops so RadioShack can stay in there
- A big surprise winner in any big race
- Bad weather in PR
- Sylvain Chavanel winning a classic
- French rider in the TOP-10 in TdF

1. A competitive Tour. I just want some real drama with 3-4 riders in contention the last few days.

2. BMC to have some success.

3. Another sprinter or two to rise to Cav's level, to add some real suspense to sprints that he's taking part in.
