The bold is probably the only thing not bold!

Peraud will lead a small group of GC contenders including Bardet, Froome, Nibali and Quintana on three consecutive MTF with Contador loosing3 minutes on each.

Antoine Vayer does some VAM figures and estimates 4 w/kg

Someone sets up a poll to say who will win the TDF, despite being 9 minutes down Contador wins the poll
LOL. I like this prediction. It might not be bold anyway!

Up the Alpe, the British Pirate will lead the reduced peloton at the bottom of the climb. He will attack, and only 3 riders will be able to follow him. After a hairpin he will accelerate again, dropping Nibali. Ligget will be talking excitedly about the contrast of climbing styles at display.

He'll be amazed at Froome being seated, commenting how he really has a lot of power coming out of the bottom of his back. Froome will attack once again, shedding Contador in the polka dot Jersey. Froome will be said to be climbing with sheer power by the commentators.

Then the Dawg will attack one final time, and this time, not even the yellow jersey of Nairo Quintana will be able to respond, looking back over his shoulder in confusion, perhaps lookingfor the Telek... I mean Movistar car. Froome will go on to win the stage but not the Tour. His time up the Alpe will be 37' 33.

Basso wins the Tour by several minutes after Contador dislocates his shoulder again and a couple of the other favorites drop out. Forum is stacked with Robo Basso comments, with age-old threads resurrected. Forum crashes later that day.

Ok, here i go :
Contador it's going to win the Tour without a stage victory. He will thank the team for their help in every post stage interview, despite being alone on every mountain stage. On the finish line in Paris he will do the 4 fingers gesture. in an interview later that day he will declare that he will not do the vuelta. A week before de the start of the vuelta he will anounce on twitter that he will give it a go and Tinkov will say that it was entirely Alberto's decision.
