Il Lombardia: Primoz Roglic (sorry, I don't know what went wrong with the formatting here).

*Lol that you can get points for this.
And of course you had to ruin my post with your late entry. Welcome, you're the 34st player!

So, we now have 33 players, a Schnapszahl as we say in Germany, I think there is no nice and ugly equivalent of this expression and I don't know if it's a good thing or not, but anyway, for Strade it seems there is one! person so far who dared to pick SOMEBODY ELSE than van der Poel, van Aert or Alaphilippe in at least one of their predictions for Strade (Mollema).

If you want to be the 34st player and beat Kovo by predicting that Greg van Avermaet (not totally impossible?), Ben Zwiehoff, or, shocking, Jakob Fuglsang will win this bike race, you can do this until tomorrow morning when the riders roll out of Siena to have a nice, bucolic ride to, well, Siena.

If you suddenly have doubts that Tadej will win this race this year, despite you saying so, you can give a pre-race prediction which differs from your original post. You can even pick a complete outsider from a small team like Kwiatkowski ! Yes, that's allowed!
Kwiatkowski is not a team.

I can see by the way you fill out your list, that you're a big van der Poel fan.
MVdP no doubt is a great rider, and he will probably win a race or two, but I can't predict which.

Last year WVA came back from injury, and was incredibly strong. I assume he will be even stronger this year.

Also Deceuninck will be a factor in many races, but it is not an option.

The forum's favourites for GTs this year:

Giro:
Bernal - 27 votes

Tour:
Pogacar - 23 votes
Roglic - 13 votes

Vuelta:
Pogacar - 14 votes
Evenepoel - 8 votes

Age of GT favourites (except Roglic) is incredibly young: 21-24 yo! When did such a situation happened last time? Sky is the limit for these young guys. Last year I made kinda prediction that these three will win at least half of GTs is 2020s. So far it's 1/3 but I wouldn't bet against them.
