They'll be lots of sprint heavy teams with the budget quite lenient on filling up with the best talent.

I have:

No Hofland for me

Gone for 6 sprinters, 1 who should sprint, but can also be good if the race breaks up and 1 for if the race breaks up

Greipel
Demare
Viviani
Modolo
Nizzolo
Guardini
Boonen
Bakelants

Too lenient the budget imo. Teams will be very similar. More to think about with higher pricing, again imo.

Not sure I agree, had there been less sprinters in the race id agree, however with so much choice, there will be variations, had to make some tough choices, as much as if the budget was lower, but its also nice to have a less restrained race, as we will be back with tough budgets/prices for the vuelta

I like one being a bit more lenient, takes the stress out of it a wee bit. Also, the fun will come from selecting a time-trial team and then juggling who will perform the best over the last 3 stages. Can't see many transfers happening in the first 2 days.

To make you all aware, the golden sprints will not be scored as they only hold time bonuses and not points

They will affect the GC scores though. As a viewer I did enjoy The Golden K. Hope we get to see the Peloton racing for the points tomorrow.

Right, so I haven't been able to find any breakdown for the primus sprints.

So what I have done for today is scored the Golden KM sprints.

The points jersey is scored on overall and the sprints jersey is based on the primus classification. Just in case anyone wonders about their scores.

If there was a breakdown that someone knows of for the primus sprints, there were two today. I will remove the Golden KM sprints and they will be replaced with the primus.

Ended up with 1, 4, 8, 9 so not really satisfied. Counting on not having to change Alaphilippe and Juul-Jensen for the rest of the race though. Counting on Juul-Jensen for the TT. He is in good form.

Does anyone know why a guy called Asselman scored 41 pts?

Because it is being scored wrongly. Gkam, you need to sort this out for both stages.

10 is his score or 18 if you include the primus intermediate sprints where he was second on two occasions but 41 i dont quite get.
