  • Right, let's have one thread to discuss pro cycling this year, rather than random threads popping up all over the place.

    I'll start - I'm shocked to find I'm looking forward to the TDU. Mainly because I want to see the much awaited Greipel vs Cavendish showdown.

  • Its come around quickly..... but i'm looking forward to it.

  • Looking forward to the cyclo-x world champs too. Wondering if Stybar will magically peak for it...

  • Lance to bow out of Pro Cycling at TDU. Will this really be the end or does he now become 'advisor'

  • He'll be convicted of fraud before the year is out.

  • When it matters Cav is gonna own Griepel this year, then it will be all about Cav has a good lead-out train blah, blah, blah

    Milan San-Remo will be more interesting though

  • He'll be convicted of fraud before the year is out.

    I'd take a £10 on that not happening

  • ^There's a Sports Illustrated article by the journalist who got the A-Rod baseball doping story rumoured to be on the way next week although it was also going to be this week and week before that.

  • I'd take a £10 on that not happening

    Remember in the summer when Armstrong said he was just a rider on the Tailwind Sports team, and had no stake in it? [ame="forum.cyclingnews.com/showthread.­php?t=11733"]Oops[/ame].

    Defrauding the federal government is a serious offence. He'll have to pull in lots of favours to avoid going to jail.

  • I'd like to discuss the racing on this thread, and keep the politics to random other threads.

  • Dov started it. Maybe.

  • Who's gonna win the 5 monuments? Predictions

  • MSR -
    Flanders -
    Roubaix -
    LBL -
    Lombardia -

  • I feel like Fabian will have a crack at MSR this year aswell as Flanders and Roubaix

  • I thought he was focusing on Liege and Lombardy?

  • He's too heavy to win either of those, in my opinion.

  • No idea to be honest, I reckon he'll want to win them all before he retires.

    Vino to hold on to LBL?

  • I predict there will be a drug scandal involving a pro cyclist this year.

  • Hippy wins

  • i predict that Contador will come out of the closet this year..

  • I predict there will be a drug scandal involving a pro cyclist this year.

    No way, everyone will have got used to the drugs by then and not bat an eyelid.

  • MSR - Mark Cavendish (teeth fixed, early season point to prove)
    Flanders - Boonen. (He needs the win so badly, he'll do anything, I mean anything, to get that win)
    Roubaix - Cancellara. (Explanation not needed.)
    LBL - (tricky one this... but I reckon Frank Schleck with Andy's help, then he'll happily slave for Andy in the Tour.)
    Lombardia - Damiano Cunego (to make up for another sub-standard season)

    hmm. Interesting.

    You don't think the most versatile Classics rider of his generation will win one this season then?

  • I thought he was focusing on Liege and Lombardy?

    He's too heavy to win either of those, in my opinion.

    Did you just have a conversation with yourself?
