Time for the big one - Le Tour

No real intro's needed, likely to be punch up between the big three, Froome, Bertie and Nairo - outsiders being Aru and Nibali (chances they might have a punch up between them) and Porte - Can the emerging French three Pinot, Barguil and Bardet give the home crowd something to cheer.

Rules same as always - GC and stage picks please - post a new post if you want to change a pick rather than editing an old post. All posts must be in by 12 BST of the day of the stage, GC and stage 1 pick by 12 on Saturday.

All forum members welcome to play along - I will do my best to keep scores up to date.

    It's a little like wrestling a gorilla. You don't quit when you're tired. You quit when the gorilla is tired.

    I shall still be backing OGE for pretty much every stage win!
