PREDICTION 2020

So, we have a new year and I would like to invite you to join our small prediction game. Last your I skipped doing it as I was too busy but this year I will do it again with the same prize as in 2018. ( original world tour jersey signed by Peter Sagan)

Rules are easy: 1 point for the winner in one-day races, 2 points for an exact place on the podium in GT, 1 point for a podium placing in GT. There will be again two predictions. One you have to post before the end of January and one you should present a few days before the race.

The one who gets the most points for both predictions takes the prize.

Compering the previous editions I added predictions for green, white and polka dot. As green jersey could be interesting to guess this year I decided to make extra points for that. My game, my rules. ;)

Please state only one name to each row.

Good luck.

Or do we make a new post each time before every race? Where we state our pre-race prediction.

What happens if you miss to make a pre-race prediction?

Anyone know if Enric Mas is eligible for the white jersey at the Tour this year? If he is I need to go back and change my predictions. I'm not sure.
According to the rules he should be: Since 2000, the white jersey has again been awarded, open for all cyclists less than 26 years of age at 1 January of the year following that Tour.

His birthday is jan 7.

Thanks, then I need to go change my white jersey pick for the Tour since if I have him on the podium (ahead of Bernal and Pogacar) he then should win the white jersey.
