Brave predictions for 2014
« on: April 30, 2014, 19:28 »
Always found predictions threads a bit boring because it just ends up with being a lot of stating the most general thought views, so here it is the prediction thread only for the not so easy achievable predictions.

A few of my predictions:

1: A Lampre rider will win a GT in 2014

2: Sky will miss the TdF podium, Kwiatkowski will make the podium. Wiggins will wear yellow, Froome will not.

    Don't agree about your first one but I definitely agree with the second one. Based on the season so far I think I'd go for a Contador, Valverde, Kwiatkowski podium at the Tour.

    Maybe the second one is disqualified for being to obvious then? I think Lampre has some good options to win, Horner at the Vuelta, maybe now missing the Vuelta he will ride the Tour. Cunego has looked strong so he is a bid for the Giro as well. Costa can't be forgotten either.

    3: Fränk Schleck will finish higher in the TdF GC than Vincenzo Nibali and Andy Schleck will NOT DNF

    These are great, almost have to try and top them, thought about going GVA doesn't get a 2nd for the rest of the year, but I can't really say I believe that.

    4: Bjarne Riis won't get banned, the ADD report will never get published.

    5: Chris Horner will race the tour because injuries prevented him from doing the Giro, Chris Horner will be Alberto Contador's main rival.

    6: When the Schlecks contracts are up they will sign with Tinkoff, and Andy will become a TdF dom for AC.

    2: Sky will miss the TdF podium, Kwiatkowski will make the podium. Wiggins will wear yellow, Froome will not.

    This is really four predictions, and Wiggins had no chance at yellow. That is Sky's fault, so I claim force majeure and count it as 3/4. "Missin' a door, three out of four // Ain't bad -- but is it safe to drive?"[1]

    3: Fränk Schleck will finish higher in the TdF GC than Vincenzo Nibali and Andy Schleck will NOT DNF

    I'm a f'ing idiot ain't no other words for it 0/3 smh

    4: Bjarne Riis won't get banned, the ADD report will never get published.

    Still alive on this one   :party

    5: Chris Horner will race the tour because injuries prevented him from doing the Giro, Chris Horner will be Alberto Contador's main rival.

    One out of two that is I suppose. Also who could have known AC's biggest rival at the TdF would be gravity?

    6: When the Schlecks contracts are up they will sign with Tinkoff, and Andy will become a TdF dom for AC.

    Ouch again
