1) Haussler wins a monument.
2) Thor Hushovd finally wins at Roubaix
3) Andy and AC battles it out at the Tour, until Jens Voigt suddenly attacks solo on stage 20 and gets 50 minutes on the rest of the field due to pure willpower and pain-tolerance, resulting in everyone else falling outside of the time limit.
4)EBH wins worlds. Perhaps then, he would not be passed by: 6 random skiers, 1 golf player, 3 football players, 2 swimmers, 1 chess player and a Javelin thrower in the "Norwegian athlete of the year" award.
5) Sastre wins giro, Evans 2. yet again.

But maybe not so random here? As for the skiers and footballers...

1) Valverde is in the lead of the TDU but he punctures and the mechanical support won't give him a wheel. The tables would of turned!:D he then loses the tdu

5) Armstrong bonks on the stage on top f the tourmalet while in the lead and jaan kirsipuu (who has come back to the tour;)) even beats to the finish.
I don't remember Evans being in the lead when this happened?
And we have an appropriate replacement for Kirsipuu: he's called Kenny van Hummel :) Although he's not as talented a sprinter, I'm afraid.

From a British cycle fan's perspective:

1. Wiggins to make the podium at TdF at the expense of cancer awareness.
2. Sky to outperform Lotto in the spring classics with EBF taking a monument.
3. Cavendish leads a 9 man British team to World title in Melbourne.
4. Rapha-Condor-Sharp win the Tour Series crits in Uk.
5. Cavendish to Sky transfer saga dominates headlines from mid March for the rest of the year

A cross between EBH and JAF?

it doesn't matter, it would just be good to have an australian win when that happens.

1 Boonen to get busted using coke again.
2 Cancellara to win World ITT and then misses wining the road race by half a wheel. He then sits in the gutter and cries like a baby.
3 Cavendish to do **** all.
4 Wiggins misses the TDF with a bad case of hemroids.
5 Lance gets busted by a French Police Raid and then claims he was cheating because he is the only person that can save people from cancer.
 
1) Cadel wins a GT
2) Valverde gets a 2 year suspension, backdated so that he loses the Vuelta. That would send a great message.
3) I finish a half ironman
4) Lance gets busted
5) The Spanish take doping seriously. Let me rephrase that, because they already take it seriously. The Spanish take anti doping seriously.

Would love to see Cancellara crying. Maybe he can lose the ITT due to a puncture, too.

1) Lance performs so dismally at the ToC and other early season races he fails to make Radio Shack's TdF squad.

2) Six former Astana Radio Shack riders are arrested as soon as they set foot on French soil. Along with various members of team management, following a fair trial they are sentenced to jail time.

3) Realising an extradition request is forthcoming Lance flees to Venezuela. The IOC informs Caracas that if they continue to harbour him, Venezuela will not be able to compete at future games. He is deported.

4) Brussels in a rare moment of lucidity stops caring about the straightness of cucumbers and issues an EU directive that sports doping is made a criminal offence in all member states. The USA and a large number of other countries follow the EU's lead and criminal sanctions become applicable worldwide for dopers.

5) As police intervention starts occurring it quickly becomes apparent to the public the cycling isn't the only dirty sport or even the dirtiest.

OK 2 & 3 both hinge on speculation as to exactly how damning the evidence the Gendarmerie are working with is but 1 would be very funny and 4 and 5 are highly desirable.

So on a more sporting level I'll start again from number 2...

2) EBH to win MSR and Roubaix.

3) Cav to win two GT points jerseys.

4) Evans to not ride the Tour but to podium at the Giro and win the Vuelta.

5) Contador and A. Schleck to get on the podium at Le Tour but to be knocked off the top spot by someone like Gesink, Nibali or Kreuziger.

1. Contador outsprints Lance for a Tour stage, doing his gun salute as he crosses the line. The Texan exercises his right to bear arms and shoots Alberto with an actual gun.

Perhaps, but I rather suspect that Armstrong will need something with a bit more range than a handgun to reach AC on the Finish line. Perhaps an ICBM.
 
Just hoping:

1. Alexander Kristoff wins milano-san remo. (provided BMC is participating?)
2. Flecha wins Paris-Roubaix
3. Rujano actually wins The Giro d'Italia.
4. Zubeldia sneaks away and wins the tour the france, without anyone noticing.
5. Boasson Hagen world champion.

1. Kenny Van Hummel completes the Tour with a couple of top tens and one seriously close sprint for first

2. Davide Vigano's progress is generally stymied at Sky.
2a. During the Tour, Skysports watchers in Britain start to believe that someone called Mark Cavendish-Brailsford is in the lead.

3. On the Kappelmuur in the Tour of Flanders, following his disappointing fade towards the end of the race last year, Mungo Kurt, backed up by his friends, manages to continue to down the cans of Belgiums finest from 10 in the morning, right up to the highlights of the race on the news that night.

4. Fédrigo wins a semi classic, Voeckler wins a breakaway in Paris Nice. Rolland sneaks top 10 and second for the white jersey in TDF while Bonnet is third twice in sprints. Nevertheless, it is late September before there is an annoucement on sponsorship for Bouygues Telecom for 2011

5. Phil Ligett mistakes Zubeldia for Armstrong and Armstrong for Zubeldia in the Tour of California. Armstrong twitters about this. Ligett falls over himself to apologise. Armstrong twitters about this. Ligett offers to make a salad in redress. Armstrong twitters about this. Ligett buys some unstraight cucumbers leading to a disaster with the salad knife. Armstrong twitters about this. The accident leads to Paul Sherwen being partnered with Franky Andreu. Armstrong twitters about this. Lance works with Kenny V to complete the pavé in the early stages within the time limit. Armstrong twitters about this. Franky makes a snarky comment on Lance that may refer to drug taking. Armstrong twitters about this. Andreu publishes an apology. Armstrong twitters about this. French Police take Franky away for questioning. Armstrong twitters about this. Armstrong is woken at 04h20 the morning of the second Tourmalet stage for questioning by the same French police. Armstrong twitters about this. Armstrong is asked to provide DNA samples. Armstrong twitters about this. Armstrong is arrested. Armstrong twitters about this. Armstrong's rap sheet is released to the press. Armstrong twitters about this. Armstrong petitions that he be tried in his own country. Armstrong twitters about this. Armstrong receives this on condition that he accept a publically appointed defence. Armstrong twitters about this. Turns out Lemond has just completed lawschool, and has been called to the bar that very day. Armstrong does not twitter about this.

If you think it's news that Phil will toss Armstrong's salad, you are sadly mistaken.

1. All the other teams gang up on Astana and The Shack to get Andy Schleck to the top spot and neither AC or LA make the podium.

Oh, and to keep in tune with bluebeard above... LA tweets about it.

That is all.

That's about as likely as Jens Voigt winning the TDF :p

He even got dropped on the "hills" in tour of britain, there's no way he can survive MSR.

I know. I'm hoping for voigt to win the tour de france as well. Or zubeldia..
