These two teams have zero wins this season, so who will be first to break the duck, and if so, who and where?

Vote away.

When did Euskaltel win a race? Did i miss that? I probably did so forgive me if i'm wrong. But if they did was it Sanchez?

On the BMC - OPL thing. I don't know. Maybe Gilbert might win in the Ardennes.
 
Euskatel has won 3 races. 2 by Sammy in the last week or two and Igor Anton won today ahead of Contador, Mosquera, and Soler.

Btw, I voted Omega because I think Gilbert has a really good shot at AG this weekend.

Sanchez won a stage of Pais-Vasco (the one where Horner complained the spanish riders worked together). Not sure if that was their first though.

As for the original question... Iit seems more like a "who will win first... Evans or Gilbert" rather then which team will win. I haven't seen much that would lead me to think anyone else is in contention aside from a lucky breakaway.

I'll go with Evans and BMC right now.

I want honesty, who saw and clicked on the thread thinking it will be another thread where some douche is trying to compare the two teams? :p

Lotto will take the first win, when Jean-Christophe Peraud conquers the French TT Championships. There you have it, Lotto-fans - you'll only have to wait two and a half months. BMC? Who knows?

You would think this is Gilberts race.but as i have quoted lotto will F*ck up in a spectacular way....Kroon will ride of into the sunset with no-one on his wheel....BMC=1st win
Kroon has been targeting this race for a longtime.

I am going to use your thinking, Evans or bmc to win every race!:D

I think he has a good chance but don't want to jinx him. Evans needs to do a ride like Andy Schleck did in Amstel last year for Kroon.

Yes, going to be harder for saxo to control this year in liege. The were able to work in large numbers to win. This year they don't have that luxury. Evans to ride solo on la redoute to victory? Supposedly on evans' twitter, he said their are caravans on the route already.

Either way let the racing begin................

Kroon lives 10km awayfrom the Amstel Gold course, so he will know the race like the back of his hand.

He is for sure a chance. But kroon being kroon makes me think he will some how miss out on the victory :p

Me thinks he learnt from last year and this could be BMC first win this season...as long as Omega/Lotto dont win....maybe Gerrans?
