Brajkovic to bounce back and be a top notch helper for Nibali.
Lutsenko to have a breakthrough season and to get a top 5 at Flandern.
Valgren to win Amstel.
Fuglsang to top 5 the Tour
Moser to also fullfil his potential.
Sounds great to me, but you forgot to mention the fact that Chernetckii will finally take it to the next level. :cool:
I agree with Fauniera, thats 2 stages in Il Giro for our man Bananito. I say Peschici and Bergamo!

Gaviria winning a monument and and podium another, also mixing it up in GT sprints and becoming a young Boonen v2 already this year and Sagan's biggest rival.

Ion Izagirre to top-5 TdF or Vuelta.
Van Keirsbulck reaches his old potential again and wins one of the smaller Flemish classics.

Guillaume Martin becomes the next French GC hope by winning a stage in Romandie or Dauphiné.

Kruijswijk attacks on a descent at the giro, gapping Nibali and winning it all.

De Gendt wins on Angliru, so he reaches three mythical mountain wins.

Kristoff-Planckaert 1-2 at Champs Elysées
