Very hard to decide on 5 from GC and Climbers. Not gone for Froome, but not sure on a Yates or Chavez.

This has come around quickly!

A quick look at the route suggests it's more than the usual array of short, sharp climbs this year.

Lots of contenders, but who's taking it seriously and who's been on the pies since the Giro/Tour?

Had similar thoughts.
Chavez was a useless Velogames pick at the Tour De France so I'm very reluctant to pick him again for this but it is a race he performs well in.

So many questions ...

How well will the TDF riders do? Froome may still have a bit of form since he wasn't really pushed all the way. He probably calculated that victory.
Is Woet Poels worth a punt a bit like Landa was in the TDF?
Bardet was cooked at the end of the TDF and ag2r have Pozzovivo for the GC.
BMC say they have 3 riders going for the GC: Roche, Caruso and TVG! Can't see any of them doing so well.
Orica also have 3 GC riders: Chaves and the Yates twins. Hard to know if the TDF has helped Chavez to ride into some form.
Is the Vuelta not going to be too hard for Nibbles?
What about the Quick-Step team? Jungels did very well in the Giro ... De la Cruz did well in last year's Vuelta ... Is Alaphilippe worth a punt just for a stage win or two?

The only certainty is that we won't waste a lot of points on the sprinters 'cos there aren't any of note!
Mre tinkering to come today and tomorrow.

Definitely much easier to get under budget than the TdF, what with only one rider above 20 points and no sprinters worthy of the name. But if anything that makes it harder because almost every permutation is possible...
