I've gone all in on a sprint today and tomorrow. I expect a few people will see last years result with the split peloton and selection of climbers and pick the likes of Moreno and Contador. I've gone the other way and I'm hoping for a Meersman-esque double from one of my sprinters:

Mezgec
Nizzolo
Dumoulin
Ratto
Howard
LL Sanchez
Alaphilippe
Yates
Agnoli  20

Purist is more balanced than most as I'm hoping for a couple of sprint finishes:

Froome
Contador (had Quintana in until this morning but heard he has a cold)
Mezgec
Howard
Arrendondo
LL Sanchez
Jesper Hansen
Chaves
Agnoli  20 20 20

Solid but unspectacular - 1,2,9,11. Nearly brought in Alaphilippe this morning but decided my last-minute fiddling normally does more harm than good. Disappointed Nizzolo didn't get up there tho'...

Yeah, Nizzolo was a let down but in fairness this is his first race back from injury so it would always be a big ask for him to compete at the sharp end of the race. In hindsight he maybe wasn't a great pick but c'est la vie, you win some, you lose some.

Looks like Sky's leadership is clear, Porte lost nearly three minutes today.
