So who floats your boat? Who makes Pro Cycling a great sport to watch?

Leaving aside the fairly obvious choices; I have always had a soft spot for Amets Txurruka. there was a period when every time there was a early attack in a mountain stage Txurruka would be there.

Doomed to failure everytime but still went for it.

Sagan

First TDF, wins 3 stages and the Green Jersey and the kids comes to the start line with a bell fitted to his bike.

I mean seriously, what's not to love?

Butt if I see either Boonen or Cancellara on the start list I'll try and make a good effort to watch.

Cancellara especially. He can totally shape and change a race totally on his own. He's phenomenal. And not just that, his lack of a pure top sprint also means he really animates the race to try and work it his way.

Love it.

Not enough tension when hes in a race winning position.

You know which way it's going to go when he goes.

Watch out for Joe Dombrowski next season, Turfle. Really excited about him joining the World Tour and seeing how he develops - as much as with JTL.

I guess so. Difference is he'll shape the race earlier on. Sagan doesn't do that (yet).

Bassons and any other riders who didn't dope - sadly not many of them.
