Waw 14/27 think Froome is capable of doing double this year.
No, you can't interpret it that way. Having Froome as the favorite for both the Tour and the Vuelta, doesn't mean that you think he can do the double.

Your Strade tip Hugo?
I wasn't really sure why Strade was in this thread along side the monuments, but I predicted GVA in the race thread :)

Are you counting most predictions for 2nd place for a rider or the 2nd most predicted winner? I assume the former

Only the former. Unfortunately, I have no idea how to make formula for the second most frequently occurring word in range. :D :D
 
Might be wrong but think it's a 0 for the forum again. Shows even with all our great knowledge how difficult some of these races are to predict. When we will someone get it right ... Gotta keep the faith and say Sagan in Flanders

You are right. Kiwi 2 : Forum 0 :D
We are lucky Kiwi is not riding RVV. (Just joking)

Actually, the forum can easily lose in RVV prediction too. There are only 6 names chosen. Sagan, GVA, Boonen, Degenkolb Terpstra, Kristoff. In monument, anything can happen. :D
