I'm a bastard for a Basque, always try to get at least one in the team - seemingly picked the right one today.

Thought about Txurruka, Jones and Paulinho but went Leukemans in the end. We'll see; he came high on this stage last year.

Hmmm, 2, 3, 4, 6 & 8. An odd top 10 that for what is supposedly a flat stage. Wonder if I've made some stupid picks.
