Greetings, and awake from hibernation!

This thread opened for a season when we might see Ineos win all 3 Grand Tours?

Jumbo-Visma are taking over Movistar's position: they've already announced they're taking Dumoulin, Roglic and Kruijswijk to the Tour.

Ineos could well fight fire with fire and take Bernal, Thomas and Froome if he's recovered enough.

Jesus, that would be fireworks if those six are all going. Chuck in Alaphillipe & Pinot too, and it could be mouthwatering.

Predictions (slightly in jest):
Roglic - flatters to deceive; arrogance at some point alienates fans
Dumoulin - catches something, or has an "incident" at some point; loved by all though
Alaphillipe - similar, some fantastic, heroic stages, leads until it gets important; loved by all
Pinot - bookies will take bets on what stage he has a dramatic collapse and then cries; loved by the French
Kruijswijk - may very well go all the way
Froome and Thomas -  have an altercation and are ejected from the Tour (sorry-couldn't resist!)
Bernal - wins Tour and Vuelta
An Italian wins the Giro

Alaphillipe - similar, some fantastic, heroic stages, leads until it gets important; loved by all. Wins Fleche Wallonne but otherwise keeps getting out-sprinted by MvdP

Matthieu van der Poel: Wins every Classic he 's entered into except Fleche Wallonne (see Alaphillipe). Wins the Olympics for both MTB and road. Single handedly solves climate change. His Grandad is still loved and mourned by everyone

Remco Evenepoel: Continues to be identified as the Second Coming (of Merckx). Rides and wins Paris Nice by soloing off the front in the first km of each stage.

Jacob Fuglsang: Sets a new record for coming second in races across the season, without winning a single race.

Barguil and Bardet: Win a mountain stage of the Tour. Fight for the polka dot jersey. Hold top 5 positions in the Tour until the last mountain of the race, when Sky Ineos team time trial up at an average of 45 km/h, meaning everyone else misses the time cut. Rumours of team-wide doping are vehemently denied

Sagan: Gets his hair cut and loses all his strength. Loved by all

Cavendish: Actually finishes a race.
