Nothing created yet so i thought i would get the ball rolling.

Flat stage according to the profile with the teams having to negotiate 2 cat 4 climbs on the closing circuits a total of 5 times.

Sprinters to the fore or will a classics style rider make the jump and steal the stage.

My thoughts are similar but couldn't afford him so gone for the next best thing in an OPQS rider.

Played it safe to be honest, could have gone Gilbert, but went Kreuziger

Im routing for a Demare/Sagan 1-2, as mu purist team currently sits 6th out of the purist teams.

My standard team looks like this

Sagan
Haussler
Kristoff
Demare
Ahlstrand
Vrecer
Wyss
Frank
Kreuziger

I bottled it and played it safe too. wanted Gilbert and Boonen but in the end thought the sprinters will want it too much too allow a classics win  26

Kristoff (Frank)
Sagan
Costa (Pinot)
Haussler
Degenkolb
Wyss
Zaugg
Koch
Grabsch

Apparently (inrng.com) there's a 4% kick up for the last 500m so I'm banking on a Degenkolb/Sagan fight for the line (much like livestrongnick by the looks of it)  3

Not even an early deadline to use as an excuse! Do you mean to say you do other things apart from thinking about fanatsy cycling that might have distracted you??

Yup, my new panniers and also replacement brakes both arrived this morning. So I was busy playing with the trike.

I see Devolder/Pauwels/Minard/Lemoine have a 4 minute gap

So Visconti has abandoned after a crash. Makes selection for mountains stages slightly easier with 1 less choice
