Even though he's the obvious favorite, I didn't pick him for MSR. You just never know with that race. Him winning a small group sprint isn't even a guarantee as there are a few guys who could be there who could challenge him.

Well, he just beat Cavendish and Greipel in a bunch sprint, so I find it hard to point at "a few" capable of beating him in a small bunch sprint.

I voted for MSR, GW, RVV and AGR.

TBH unless Gilbert was in 2011 form I think Sagan is the man in AGR. Surely not the Fleche Wallone, though. I don't know if I'm ready for Sagan to win there. :eek:

And on the stage before plenty of people beat him in the sprint so it's not that simple. In any case I doubt there will be any sprinters left at the finish to trouble him. Sagan and Nibali are going to crush everyone on the Poggio and anyone good enough to go with them won't beat Sagan in a sprint.

I am struggling to see Nibali winning if he waits to Poggio with the move. We shall see.

I voted for MSR. I can't see anyone else winning that, its tailor made for him and he deserves his first monument. The scenario im imagining is that he ll be following cancellara. Whenever the latter attacks, sagan will go with him to the finish and beat him in the sprint. Any others who tag along will be fighting for second or third.
Or, Sagan will attack on the descent, very few will follow him, cancellara will and maybe nibali. If cancellara attacks on the flat after the descent does anyone reckon whether sagan will be able to follow him?

Of course one thing with being the huge favourite for a race is you get marked ultra-tightly. If he gets in a move, everyone can try and get in it, then make him do all the work and attack, attack, attack before the sprint. Even Cancellara can be marked out of a race, and he can basically ride anyone off his wheel on the flat, which Sagan can't.
 
Which races? all the ones he'll sets his eyes on!!:D

a RVV title will take him to the level among Cance & Boonen. M-SR will be nice too, but I'd rather see him taking over the cobbles classics reign for sure

The only scenario I can imagine which will see him lose the race is if he gets cancelled out of it like Cancellara in the past two years. If sagan doesn't have team mates with him then riders in a group with him will keep on attacking him and he will have to do the chasing. If he gets away on the descent do you think he will get caught on the flat by at least three or four guys?
