We're still a week away, but time to start thinking about Fort Bill and who's going to take the win? (Plus we have a new poll function in the forums and I wanted to try it out...you can make them too : )

I've thrown out a list of competitors that's not complete at all, so choose your winner or add a write-in if you believe in fairy tales.

Jack Moir (definitely a threat for the win) is out with injury. bummer

Gotta be the King of the Fort, it'd be silly to count him out! I'll be shouting for him!

I cant wait, I'll be making the annual pilgrimage! Only up for the Sunday this year unfortunately, left planning way too late this year.

Troy Brosnan should be a top pick I’d think. Surprised he’s not on the list

Lots of fast dudes I would be stoked to see take the win, but hard to bet against Minnaar at Fort Bill.

You’re not professional

If you don’t look at the top ten finishers in the last wc races say that Brosnan has ever entered it is easy to overlook him I guess

Why so serious? Sometimes I miss the littermag days with rant and barf bags... Troys post doesn't seem too serious...

What's the over/under on Minnaar not blowing up a tire (or a wheel)?

Shhhhh, dont jinx it! He's been plagued by flats recently I sincerely hope his tyres can hold out, for a man that rides so smooth and effortlessly he sure gets a lot of them...

Troy may owe ya a beer when it’s all said and done. He’s always there. A little anger for added focus and a fraction of an ummph ftw

everyone is scared to reveal whats up with claudio? Sorry for the off topic post....

|

Damn, crazy to see how many lurkers there are on here!

You're always crazy to bet against Minnaar here - but I went with Marcelo just because I want to see him up there. Remember last year when he pulled back like 5 seconds on the motorway? That shit was unreal.

Would be good to see Gee back up to speed as well.

1.3% of voters picked Amaury Pierron. that would have been some good $$$ if money was on the line : )
