    10 individual stages, 10 different winners. The last time that happened was the 1996 Tour.

    They'll drink some ketones and suddenly climb like two men.

    You're probably right, the 4 will climb like 2.

    Who knows though, you may be on to something.

    Van Aert is listed as an All-Rounder? WTF?

    Yes he is .

    Putting tomorrowís road captain faith in somebody I never thought Iíd ever put betting money on.
    Letís see how tomorrow goes.
    I need to make some changes after tomorrow.
    N. Terpstra is out of the race, and I need to think about the ITT.

    I almost did my changes for the Time Trial and put Rohan Dennis in, apparently he abandoned the race today?

    the Dennis thing is weird, bailed with his agent & the team is mystified...


    GT says he's previewed the time trial course 3x...
    weather looks mild/dry w/ no/low wind

    Bernal is a possible top 10 finisher, but GT seems like a top 3 contender

    With no Dumoulin or Dennis, there's space for Alaphillipe, Kwiatkowski, Porte, Fuglsang, Kruiswijk, or Van Aert...maybe Tony Martin again?

    should be interesting

    There are a few 8 pointers that could win tomorrow.
    I have to sell a 7 pointer who has abandoned, and can't find a good replacement.

    Can't help you with that but I'm impressed with ICEHOCEY's strategy...he dumped all the high point sprinters and picked up GT...I'm guessing you have to be out or close to out of credits but at this point you may it may not matter.

    I've only made 3 changes, getting rid of abandoned Terpstra is 4, so I have 4 more.

    I meant IH on the credits, sorry. He's got to be running low.

    He has been having some disagreements with team.
    He's not happy with his TT bike, and the team can't/won't say anything because Merida Bikes is the teams major sponsor.
    They were also preparing a new prototype skin suite that has not been ready in time, or is not right.
    He has quit teams mid season before, and will do it again.
    It's not true that he disappeared and his team did not know where he was.
    Basically the team did not want to answer questions, or justify why their World Champion Time Tribalist rider has quit on the eve of the TdF ITT.

    Alaphilippe finished with seemingly plenty in the tank for someone who buried GT by 14 secs

    Am I just bitter that my guy didnít take it? Certainly possible...

    It seems like a lot of folks are surprised at his strength

    Me too. But you have Alaphilippe so you did okay.
    Replacing WVA with another 16 point All Arounder who gains that many points is going to be tough. He's been gaining points like leader, but you can only have 3 leaders max.
    Fawk...

    I was stunned by JA today! I am in the "anyone-but-Sky/Ineos" camp so loved it.

    ... but I am not saying it was the drugs,
    ... but drugs?

    and how badly will Ineos try an bury him over the next week!

    So does he have a chance?

    Sir Whatshisface a week ago - "not a chance"
