There are the Usual Suspects at 8pts. It's a lot harder finding 6 and 4-pointers who are good value for money. There may be a sprinter or two who should be in the "Sprinter" category. It's sometimes better to pick a 4-pointer team-mate of a GC contender who will pick you up some team points rather than looking for someone who could win a surprise stage on a breakaway!
HTH!

I'm in. Most selections based on Dolphin results and I was tempted to just pick the entire Jumbo Visma team to see how that would go, one would still have 8 points left over for the wild card. Not really looked at the course so it's pretty much stick a pin in, but I'm not expecting this race to finish, especially if crowds start turning up. It's impossible to police the mountain stages in normal circumstances, I just can't see how they're going to manage now other than not allowing anybody up the mountain from days in advance of the stage happening.

I swapped between Roglic and Bernal so many times during tinkering, I've decided the best thing to do is pick neither and opt instead for
Pinot to lead my team.
Odds on he will crash out this afternoon.

Just about remembered to stick a team in for this. Fairly confident it is absolute trash. Been looking forward to the race so hopefully it can be completed!

Lots of crashes already in the rain. The big descent near the end is still to come.

Ewan is 6 minutes behind the peloton!

The riders have decided to "neutralise" the race for the time being due to the slippery roads.

EDIT: Astana are having none of it!

Crazy. They've slowed down so much that Ewan is going to get back into the peloton for the sprint finish, if there is a sprint finish!

They're taking the final descent very slowly but George Bennett has still crashed. He's back on his bike but he doesn't look too good.

Cyclingnews speculating that Ewan changed bikes and the time gap was taken off his original bike. For some reason I am glad he is there to dispute the finish only question is how far out they go from? The last 20km when roads are flatter or last 3km so everyone’s time is safe?

The times were taken at 3km after a request from riders and Directeurs Sportifs. The final crash was just inside the 3km. Pinot came down and didn't look at all happy when he crossed the line.
