I was assuming same as a classic, with bonus points for being in a break at halfway - but yes if it turns out that there aren't many DS in the Road Race then it might be sensible to change things slightly...

Being more specific, will it be a no limits within budget free for all like the world champs last year or more focused? I remember that somebody took the whole uk squad. Bonus points for countires not teams?

I could've thrown some other names in, i.e. Tejay in the TT is one i've missed. But as always, I just wanted to post it pretty quickly, and I didn't want to do an essay! The names I put down are the ones that stood out to me at the time

Yeh fair enough, you could make an arguement for so many riders in the race anyway (road race), but good blog

They seem to have replaced Kristin Armstrong, among other women, with a loaf of bread wearing a bowler hat. Strange.

Apart from Froome's baldness
My favourite HAS to be Timothy Duggan, It looks like he's posing in the mirror while holding his phone out to take the picture of himself

Geez.....Sylvan Chavanel looks like Jaws from the 007 films Garrido looks about 60 Jakob looks like he's been pulled through a hedge backwards and even Spartacus looks bad.
Are these passport photo's or something?
Most of them will be lucky to clear immigration!!!
