A simple forum competition for the Tour de France.

Predict the final top 10 in the General Classification in the order you think they will finish.

1 point for every rider that appears in the top 10 at the end of the Tour
2 extra points for correctly predicting a rider's finishing position within the top 10.

Enter in the comments section below. Cut-off for entries is the start of stage 1.

No prizes at the moment. Unless I or someone else can come up with anything.

I'll start:
1. Contador
2. Froome
3. Nibali
4. Valverde
5. Costa
6. Mollema
7. Van den Broeck
8. Frank
9. Talansky
10. Rodriguez

No Horner for anyone? He'll probably win it.

I've been thinking about the scoring...  39 How about 3 points if you get a rider's position exactly right, 2 points if you're off by one position (up or down), and 1 point if you're off by 2 positions?  39 ... or some variant of that?...  39

Well, screw it... I'll do the scores! But I'll do them my (!) way  4

Here are the scoring rules:
1. Your rider will get the points detailed below for their Final Ranking in GC
2. Your rider will be penalized 1 point for each difference in position between their Final GC standing and the position you placed them in your submission.

Here's the Final Points for being in the Top 10 in GC:

35 Vincenzo Nibali
30 Jean-Christophe Péraud
25 Thibaut Pinot
22 Alejandro Valverde Belmonte
20 Tejay Van Garderen
18 Romain Bardet
16 Leopold Konig
14 Haimar Zubeldia Agirre
12 Laurens Ten Dam
10 Bauke Mollema

And here's the scores  1 :

TERatcliffe26 95
Joelsim 85
chrisdstripes 83
Dux89 79
Ghedebrav 78
chokofingrz 72
JAndrewHill 70
stevemarks 70
djb123 68
stumps 67
livestrongnick 62
NeilG83 61
enrique 61
JC 58
Him Up North 55
debbieg 55
happylemon 44

TER was the only contestant to place 5 riders correctly in the Top 10!  1 At most, other contestants placed only 4 riders, giving him the victory! Nice job, TER!  1
