Cavendish won't win a single stage
Valverde 3rd
There will be a <39min Alpe ascent (in other words, someone will join Pantani, Armstrong, Ullrich, Klöden and Landis in the top 10)

Froome to win the cobble stage in the rain. :D

Sky riders setting the pace up climbs, Froome whisking away from the bunch with 1-2km from the win.

Many of your predictions are not exactly "bold". :cool:

Bold should be something unexpected and not widely expected.
 
Quintana not getting through cobbled stage, Froome to hold 4 minute lead (and be the best among GC riders on cobbles) just to get sick for 2 last mountain stages and lose 5+ minutes, Contador dropping out after first week and trying to go for Vuelta. Forum getting butthurt over Nibali winning another Tour
 
Kudus to win the Mountain classification
Froome to finish top 15 in the cobbled staged
Astana will not be 3 classes above the rest of the field
Rodriguez to do better in the long MTF then on the short ones
Team LottoNL - Jumbo will win a stage
Dan Martin will not crash/get sick

Team Lotto-Jumbo to meat the tarmac at least once.

LRP to win the Tour after going all Aitor Gonzalez on Froome.
 
Little Richie to sneak into a large break as nobody can spot him and gains 20 minutes on the rest. Sky then decide to put Froome on a leash Wiggo 2012 style and Porte just about holds on despite cracking bad on stage 20 to win by 2 seconds

That would be pretty funny. Sports Gods please make it happen.

Quintana to finish outside the top 5.

British riders win every single jersey.
