Tour De France 2020 (29/08/20-20/09/20)

An interesting TDF in store for us all this year for obvious reasons.

The Jumbo-Visma team looks very strong on paper. Ineos also have a strong team despite leaving out Froome and Thomas.
Will it simply be Bernal v Roglic? Or will Carapaz and Dumoulin also have their say? There are plenty of other serious contenders too.
It's a very lumpy parcours this year with not a lot of stages for the sprinters.

And let's not forget that there is a Velogames competition up and running called "Great Big Bike Game XXII" The deadline for submitting a team is Saturday 29th August 13:45 CEST!

I'm really looking forward to this year's edition, despite the lack of British interest in either the GC or the green jersey. After three days of the Criterium de Dauphine I would have put a lot of money on Primos Roglic or another of his team, but the crashes on day 4 have left Jumbo without Steven Kruijswijk and Roglic's own fitness a bit uncertain. But if Roglic is 100% fit, then I think he will win.

No easing into this years race though is there. Often the GC guys can gain some form and fitness during the first week as the sprinters and rouleurs battle out the early stages. The 2 Cat 1s on stage 2 could see a shake up of the GC on day 2 if any team decides to ride it hard and the first summit finish is stage 4.

With fitness concerns over Roglic and Bernal you could make good arguments for a dozen riders to win this i think. Most open TdF i can remember going in.

This should be a good one.

I think I read that every stage is being shown live from start to finish. Perfect background noise while "working from home".

If you've already "played" Velogames, I think your team goes automatically into the "CPFC BBS 2020 League". All my teams go straight in, so I don't know what the code is!

I never miss a second of the Tour during my French school holidays when it's in July. I will, of course, be going back to work next week.
Fortunately the Clerment-Lyon stage is on a Saturday, so I'll either head down to the finish or ride out to a quiet spot somewhere in the last 50km or so!

I think there might be a couple of CPFC codes.

Pretty worrying noises in relation to coronavirus. I wouldn't bet on the Tour finishing

I watched the presentation yesterday evening on Eurosport - it is usually a bit naff, but this was surreal - they had "entertainment" that got no applause - none of the teams got any, and Ineos didn't get booed.

I'm in. My team is probably garbage because I'm not fully up to date on form but it looks nice on paper.

Up to double figures now in velogames entries.

All first-timers welcome - no skill required! Truth be told, it's a bit of a lottery guessing who's in form, who's been on the pies, who's going to fall off and quit before they leave Nice, etc. etc.
