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:

Spoiler
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
Nope
- 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!)
Roger!
- Wellens wins LBL after a big solo
Nope
- 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.
Join the EPIC madness! http://pcmdaily.c...d_id=31670

Checking this out again and had a good time seeing how terribly wrong i was in the begining of the season Smile

Right:
- Valverde wins Catalunya
- OH! And Gaviria wins first stage of Vuelta a San Juan Grin
Cool

Wrong:
- Porte wins TDU
- Valverde wins Pays Vasco
- Greg van Avermaet wins Tour de Flandres
- Paris Roubaix is won by Trek-Segafedo.
- Oliver Naesen will win a WT cobbled classic
- Valverde will Not win Fleche but he will win Liege. ( :lol: :lol: )
- Amstel will be one by a sprinter, Colbrelli, Sagan, Matthews, probably between these.
- Adrien Petit will Top10 Paris-roubaix.
- Greipel will win a cobbled classic.
- Snow will make one cobbled classic a race of plenty crashes and Paris-Roubaix will be without some of the main figures.
- Mathieu van der Poel for CX WC win. Wout van Aert will be in the discussion of the Binckbank Tour. (OH DEAR GOD HOW TF DID I MISS THAT Angry )


Alright that didn't seem to go so well.. let's take a look at how the Giro is going..


- Froome will not be suspended.. but a crash (or ilness) will prevent him from being on the Giro OR the Tour. (i guess he did crash before the prologue started...)
- Chaves and Miguel Angel Lopez will be on the final Giro podium, with Dumoulin or (likely) Aru. (alright this can still go somewhere)
- Brambilla and Pantano will be a brilliant double on the Giro. (*inhales deeply*)

And to top it off this amazing piece of my mind wich I was very confident:

- No doping scandals in 2018 (excluding Froome's that began 2017)

little late so i start late

- Betancur wins the Giro, doing 5 grand solo's in the mountains
- Mollema wins the Tour because all GC contenders get caught in a cash in a straight line. Mollema weaves so much on his bike however, that he evades everything and is the only good GC contender left.
- Bernal dominates the Vuelta, winning 7 stages including a TT and a couple of mountain stages. Kinda like PCM were the best rider usually wins 5/6 stage.
- Kangert wins the World Championship ITT and the road race, causing Guido Mukk to explode.
 
Arberg
Froome wins Giro, Tour and Vuelta.

I’ll raise you one, all this will happen, but he’ll still lose.

I missed this thread this time round, but some of mine before the season were fairly obvious:

- Laporte will win Green at the TDF
- Ganna will win a Giro Stage (I have no clue if he’s racing Pfft)
- Froome doesn’t win any GTs

I’ll also throw in:

- Fuglsang podiums in the TDF
- Zakarin podiums in Vuelta
- San Sebastián winner doesn’t race the TDF

I’ll leave my two cents on how Froome will have a horrid year, abandoning the Giro after another crash, right after the second rest day, and then gets a year long suspension after losing his salbutamol case. Smile
