Ok folks its time to start racing again.

Stage 1 is only 121 kms however we have 4 categorised climbs, 2 1st, a 2nd and the final 3rd with the last 6km all uphill before it flattens out.

With the wealth of quality in the field i doubt there will be many similar teams and if you get it right for stage one you could be in the driving seat for the whole comp.

Good luck to all  4

I can't see stage 1 being as 'sprinty' as some seem to think so maybe I've dropped a rick?

Standard for stage 1

Froome
Kwiatkowski
Sanchez
Cunego
Fuglsang
Elissonde
Hoogerland
Fonseca
Barhane

Kept changing my mind about whether the first 2 stages would be too tough for Meersman/Gavazzi etc, and in the end decided they are. As with a lot of teams, could be really good, but equally likely to be really bad - looking forward to seeing who gets it right today!

STD
Kwiatowski
Van Den Broek
Cunego
Fuglsang
Gerrans
Gallopin
Will Clarke
Le Mevel
Geslin

PURIST (Similar)
Froome
Kwiatowski
Cunego
Fuglsang
Gavazzi
Coppel
Hoogerland
Le Mevel
Geslin

I looked up Veilleux on procyclingstats (along with 30 others), but who would have thought? What it is, 80 fantasy points for his effort today?

Yup, got all that  3

I'm just looking at the finish, I don't think the Cat 3 will be scored, being only 1.2km from the finish line or so. Its more like a summit finish
