I don't really follow cycling outside of MRR.

But would love to see Boonen or Fabian win gold and then whoever wins it double up with the rainbow stripes in a few months. It would be interesting to see if Evald has it in his legs to make a stance for the road race after the Tour.

Wouldn't put money on Maja, she pulled out of the Olympics after breaking some bones and tearing tendons in her right foot.

MRR: Cavendish a lock. Sagan can't outsprint Cav and Britain will bring back any Sagan attack.
WRR: Vos is the Eddy Merckx of women's racing right now. Virtual lock.
MTT: Candidates are Tony Martin, Fabian Cancellara, Taylor Phinney, and Bradley Wiggins. Martin was hurt in Tour. Cancellara seems to have lost a bit. Phinney is on the way up but lacks experience at that distance. So Wiggins is my pick. Phinney a surprise second, Cancelara third.
WTT: Armstrong has been so dominant... I'll go with her.
