- Brambilla and Pantano will be a brilliant double on the Giro.
- Chaves and Miguel Angel Lopez will be on the final Giro podium, with Dumoulin or (likely) Aru.

- Nibali will be on the Tour podium but Won't win,
- Kittel wins first stage in the Tour, Gaviria wins Green. He and Sagan follow each other in mountain breaks.

- Uran wins Il Lombardia
- W52 will dominate the continental scene again, but not with the same dominance.
- No doping scandals in 2018 (excludinf Froome's that began 2017)
- Snow will make one cobbled classic a race of plenty crashes and Paris-Roubaix will be without some of the main figures.
- Porte will crash on the 15th July, Tour de France stage 9. But he will be the strongest in the climbs.

- Mathieu van der Poel for CX WC win. Wout van Aert will be in the discussion of the Binckbank Tour.
- OH! And Gaviria wins first stage of Vuelta a San Juan Grin

This is more what I hope will happen in 2018 and some of my unabashed Movistar favouritism...

-Valverde leads in Ardennes. Should be challenging for wins here again.
-Landa leads in Giro. Should podium.
-Nairo leads Tour with Landa as Super-dom. If he doesn't challenge for the win with this setup, he never will. Valverede skips Tour.
-Valverde leads Vuelta. Can challenge for podium (or even a win maybe!)
-Valverde remains prime for WC RR.
-Nairo leads in Lombardia.

Off course they will mess all this up!

About other teams...

Hoping for a good season from Mitchelton Scott. Interested to see how the Fuglsang MAL duo lead Astana.
World War 3 finally kicks off thanks mainly to North Korea and the United States and all sports around the globe are cancelled

Looking back on 2017:

So will have to do slightly better this year (again Pfft )
- Toon Aerts to win the cyclocross worlds after Wout and Mathieu hold another staring contest
He was injured, or he would've won
- Sagan wins both Omloop and Kuurne
That one was really close
- We'll see a Poggio attack win San Remo, maybe GVA?
Kwiatek, good enough!
- Dwars Door Vlaanderen gets a really big winner
All hail king Lampaert!
- Boonen wins E3 after beating Sagan in a sprint
Ok, this one was way off
- We get a normal Gent-Wevelgem and Gaviria wins in a bunch sprint
Again, not that far off with my prediction
- Team Sky sets up a train on the Kwaremont and wins Tour of Flanders, no one is happy
Haha nope, but we got way better!
- Vanmarcke wins Roubaix and cries after the finish
- Brabantse Pijl will be won by a convicted doper
Nah bro
- Etixx does not win the Gold Race because Gilbert chases down Martin
Hahaha hahahaha
- Valverde wins Fleche (stick with what you know!)
- Wellens wins LBL after a big solo
- Quintana wins the Giro again, but disappoints in le Tour
Tommy D! But the second part was correct
- Froome wins le Tour again in the most boring race ever
Hmm, it was ok I guess
- San Sebastian goes to a Yates
Had to look that one up actually. Kwiat again.
- Vuelta is due an old suspicious winner needing a new contract, how's Valverde doing with his contract?
Froome is not that old. Fits the bill otherwise.
- Sagan wins another WC after not taking the lead until the final 20m, Martin takes the TT again
Sagan never disappoints Wink
- Gaviria wins Paris-Tours in a proper sprint this time
He got close though

It was better than I expected. Let's try for 2018:

- Mathieu wins the cyclocross worlds with a +1 minute gap
- Sagan wins both Omloop and Kuurne
- Gaviria for San Remo
- Dwars Door Vlaanderen goes to Degenkolb
- E3 for Sagan
- Gent-Wevelgem for Sagan
- Sagan is the only favourite for the Ronde, but gets beaten by Naesen
- Stybar finaly wins his Roubaix
- Matthews wins Brabantse Pijl
- Some dutchie wins the Gold Race, they all go crazy
- Valverde wins Fleche (stick with what you know!)
- Wellens wins LBL after a big solo
- We get a surprise Giro winner, Froome doesn't start
- Dumoulin wins le Tour, Froome goes crying
- San Sebastian goes to a Yates
- Froome does win the Vuelta, then retires
- Sagan wins another WC after not taking the lead until the final 20m, Dumoulin for the TT
- Valverde finaly wins Lombardia before retiring
- GVA wins Paris-Tours after a very disappointing season.
