Cycling Weekly writers make their 2019 race predictions

Our 'experts' have their say...

We all love to make predictions when it comes to the biggest races of the season.

So before the first Monument of the year this weekend at Milan-San Remo, the writers at Cycling Weekly have put their reputations on the line and predicted how they see the 2019 season panning out.

>>> Seven bold predictions for the 2019 racing season

Alongside the usual Grand Tours and Monuments, we also look ahead as Britain plays host to the 2019 World Championships in Yorkshire this September.

So regardless of the predictions, we are set for a bumper season in mainland Europe and at home on local roads.

Let us know what you think of our riders predictions and make your own by letting us know via social media @cyclingweekly.
