Forum Competition: Tour de France Top 10

by NeilG83   July 1, 2014  

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

If you must break the law, do it to seize power: in all other cases observe it. Gaius Julius Caesar.

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

I've been thinking about the scoring... Thinking 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? Thinking ... or some variant of that?... Thinking

I had about 25 names on my short list and gave up trying to eliminate names just ended up mostly taking the obvious ones. This is my head team I expect more surprises in the top ten that I predict here. I will enter a heart team later.

Froome
Talansky
Contador
Valverde
Nibs
JVDB
Bardet
Machado
J Rod.

^ actually could I please swap Majka for Van den Broeck (I've just read his comments about not being prepared to compete)?
