    So who was accurate in their preditctions?

    Accuracy can be verified by looking at anyone's old posts so let's go back and see what some of you predicted!

    What we do know is that all the "DNF in '05" predictions were mistyped, so what those people actually meant was that he'd be a "DNS in '06." Which, assuming he does retire, will in some small contrived way be correct.

    Did anyone pick the Thunder God for green? I can't see him losing it tomorrow, he'd have to finish, what, 3 or more places behind O'Grady? I can't even think of a half decent sprint threat outside of the big three, everyone else is out.

    How about anyone for Rasmussen?

    I bet no one picked Popo for White, as in a similar vein probably no one would have thought Disco'd get two stage wins by two Men Who Aren't Lance. No precedent, really.

    But I think a lot of people picked the podium, and in order. No surprises there, really, unless you were genuinely expecting a lot to change this year.

    I predicted Lance 7 straight TDF winning in 1999 after the first one.

    Does that count?

    Edit: I think Lance should use "7" somewhere in his new line of bike's name.

    Eddy Merckx picked the podium perfectly this year. I didn't see any other cycling "pundits" doing the same.
