Good question... I can't answer, but... hope we hear soon... On another note... the site altimetry table is pretty cool! If you scroll accross the profile you get elevations at every point in the race... Pretty cool!  1

Dave is away for a couple of days and I have NO idea. I'll be doing the startlist updates, thats it. But I would guess its the sprints. That's how I would run it. Points is purely for the finish order

Last year was definitely intermediate sprints, so I'm going to work on that assumption...

If the decision hasn't been made yet, can I make the case for the points jersey to be scored?
The Tour of Britain used to have lots of similar stages so it made sense to score the sprints competition, otherwise it would just be the same riders scoring all the fantasy points day after day. But this year the stages are quite varied, so I think it would be better to score the more important competition, which is the points.
If the decision has already been made then just ignore this.  40

Totally agree, the terrain is much more varied so +1 to the points comp.

Is there enough time for someone to do a pick 3 brits for the ToB ?

There must be enough riders to do it.

I'm happy to do the spreadsheet for a pick three Brits if someone wants to set it up and get it rolling.

I'd second that

6/4/2 for intermediate sprints themselves and then score the top 5 in the POINTS jersey would be my recommendation.
