True, but the gradients are lot steeper than we're used to on the TDF, plus there are some other lumpy stages which will not be so simple. I still hope Froome and his Sky team don't dominate proceedings 'cos we'll have a much more open race.

What price Aru?

Think he may well pick a stage or two but he hasn't ridden much since March and I doubt he has the stamina to last 3 weeks in a GC battle.

I hope some of these outside contenders can step up and make it exciting.

You could get 100/1 pre-Dauphine, but he's down to around the 16-25 mark dependent on odds and each way terms.

I can't have Porte, and I wouldn't touch Froome at the current price.

I've had a small amount on Dan Martin at a silly price, because I'd be kicking myself otherwise.

De Gendt is another punt to nothing on the KOM.

Chavez from last year fully fit and race ready, yes. At the moment, I doubt it. That's why they are hedging their bets with Yates presumably taking a run at the white jersey

I was looking at Aru each way.100/1 was always a ridiculously high price and I wish I'd seen it earlier.

Just got round to having a tinker. Most of the riders I want to pick seem to be in the climbers section.

Good point! Some of the climbers are for me all-rounders, and some of the all-rounders are climbers or even no more than "top-of-the-range" domestiques. If you don't go for the expensive all-rounders, there's not much else to choose from. I can't see any cheeky 4-pointers of note either!

Yep, how on earth is Fuglsang not an all-rounder? BTW, I see they've put Thierry Adam on a motorbike for the tour - To view the link you have to Register or Login - better have special wide tyres.

Thierry Adam had some motorbike practice during the Dolphin, I think.
France Télévision have nicked Alexandre Pasteur from Eurosport for the commentary and Mme Gallopin (Marion Rousse, ex-cyclist and French champion in 2012) for her :cough: punditry! She's actually very good!

Really looking forward to this, feel that there will be some surprises on the podium in Paris.

I have spent far too much time tinkering with my team and have persuaded myself that it is the finest Velogames team that I have entered since the Alan Lees were in their prime. Against this anyone who bases a team around Ritchie Porte getting to Paris without at least one catastrophic day is probably somewhat deluded.

I've had at least six tinkers. Ended up with a 'no one who rode the giro, and no froome, porte or quintana' strategy.

In the end I decided not to tinker at all, stick with my initial selection. I expect by Tuesday I'll be seriously annoyed I didn't put Sagan in.

First time i've left the big hitters out, actually nice to have a balanced team rather than some random 4 pointers who don't get any points for carrying water. Will just make it more disappointing when the 8 pointers end up doing nothing anyway.
