BMC misses the podium at Milan-San Remo

Conditions? Terms?

Should probably be two-fold. Making the podium one condition, winning the race another. I think they'll do neither.  :P

new bet I can only take until P-R I have another bet after that since you think Sagan will win

1 BMC rider or more will beat P.Sagan MSR

I win you get a BMC logo as an Avatar

    Actually, I don't quite understand that part of your post.  ???

    As to the other parts, I was just trying to make the predictions "interesting" with my Sagan pick. It could happen, but I'm not willing to bet my avatar on THAT particular scenario.  ;D

    I just don't think BMC will podium.

    the 1st part - length of the bet ie until P-R

    so I guess no bet then

    If BMC podiums, I'll take the BMC logo until Paris-Roubaix.

    If they don't podium...you take this?  ;D

    I'll risk my avatar on "No BMC on the PR podium".

    BMC on the podium = I fly the flag of your choice until the Giro.
    No BMC on the podium = you proudly display whatever I select.

    Loser must post at least 10 times per week while running the avatar of shame to keep it visible and to encourage hails of derisive laughter.
    Am I serious? Look at my avatar. Do I look serious?

    Who's my taker?

    Aw crap, I just read upthread and saw that people bet on the same thing for MSR.  :fp Forget it, I'll have to think of something else. What is it about BMC that makes us think they won't podium?

    Ok AG, done then.
    I can see Ballan on the podium, but if it wasn't risky what would be the point of betting?

    Still feeling shame for placing a bet that had been made only three posts prior!

    I have already selected an avatar for you, AG. Something that honours both your heritage and your love of cycling... and which might make you scream your lungs out for Ballan, or any BMC rider, come Sunday. It's hidden in the spoiler if you just HAVE to see your future.

    Anyone interested in making a Vuelta bet? I bet Alberto will not win with more than 5 minutes advantage. If I win, the other takes an Alberto avatar for one month. If I lose, I will take an Alberto avatar for the rest of my life. (!!!!)

    That seems like a fair bet to me. Only counts if Alberto wins though.

    why would anyone bet that

    you lose and you get an alberto avatar - you dream about this guy so it is  a loss

    I will bet you this

    I will take the bet but if Contador wins by more than 5 min you take ans Evans avatar of ACF choice for 6 months and a Wiggo Avatar of Jamsque choice for 6 months

    I lose I get an Contador avatar for 1 month - I can not start this until after the tour of the end of the season due to a prior bet

    No that's not fair because I want him to win by more than 5 minutes but I don't think he can. So I'll have to root against him and I can't do that.

    It's also not fair because it's 1 year vs 1 month. And while I don't know how bad it is for you to have an Alberto avatar I am sure it is at least 1000 times worse for me to have a Wiggo or Cuddles avatar. Also I'm kind of attached to my Alberto avatar.
